Join Orchestra Miami as we celebrate the 100th birthday of groundbreaking Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla! On Argentinean Independence Day, Friday, July 9th at 8 PM, join Orchestra Miami as we celebrate one of Argentina’s most famous citizens with an all-Piazzolla program at Miami Beach’s North Beach Bandshell. Joining the orchestra will be special guests from Buenos Aires, guitar & vocal duo Rosa Incaica, and Bandoneón master David Alsina, conducted by guest conductor Andrés Cárdenes.
Known in his native land as "El Gran Astor" ("The Great Astor"), it is not hyperbole to say the Piazzolla is the single most important figure in the history of tango. Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) spent his early years with his family in New York City, where he became known as a child prodigy Bandoneón player. After returning to Argentina in 1937, he began performing in nightclubs at the age of 17 and studied theory and composition with composer Alberto Ginastera. Looking to leave tango behind, he studied the works of Stravinsky, Bartok and Ravel and won a scholarship to study with the legendary pedagogue Nadia Boulanger in France. Boulanger encouraged him to continue composing tango, but infused with his knowledge and love for jazz and classical styles. After returning to Buenos Aires, he formed his groundbreaking octet that played tango as self-contained chamber music, rather than as a vehicle for a vocalist. He went on to revolutionize the art form and composed concertos, pieces for full orchestra, opera and chamber music in addition to tango.
In-person tickets start at just $20 and online livestreaming tickets in high-definition or virtual reality are available starting at just $5! For tickets and more information, please visit www.OrchestraMiami.org, or call (305) 274-2103.
