Fiesta: The Tango Invasions

Fiesta: The Tango Invasions

Thu, 04/09/2015 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm

Composer Astor Piazzolla brought the Tango to the concert hall; hear some of his works this week on Fiesta.

Before Astor Piazzolla, the Tango music from Rio de la Plata enjoyed periodic moments of international popularity but always as dance music, mostly played in nightclubs and in the radio. Piazzolla put music into the concert hall and, buy doing that, he opened a complete new field for performers and composers from Rio de la Plata.
