The Tango is the dance of love and the BUENOS ARIES TANGO – Sydney Only Australian Brandenburg Show will take place on 30th October, 1, 2, 6 and 8th November at 7pm in the City Recital Centre, Angel Place. From Monteverdi to Piazzolla, the show will be ‘a seductive fusion of intense Argentine tango and sublime 17th century Italian madrigals’.
“The breathy and sensual sound of the bandoneón has become symbolic of tango music,” says Paul Dyer AO, Artistic Director of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. “Its very sound conjures the romantic images of dancers locked in an intense embrace and the slide of their leather shoes across the dance floors and streets of Buenos Aires. It is passionate, sexy and exciting”.
Played by the ensemble “La Chimera” led by Eduardo Egu?ez (Argentina) on theorbo, baroque and classical guitar with guest co-director Susanna Moncayo (Argentina) voice, Furio Zanasi (Italy) voice and Gabriel Rivano (Argentina) bandoneón, they will feature music composed by Argentinian tango composer and bandoneon player Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992), Italian composer, gambist and singer Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) from Lombardy and a musician from Ferrara, Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643) and many others. Madrigals are Italian lyrical poems set to music, representing an artistically ennobled form of literature that emerged and took Venice by storm in the 16th century, celebrating ideas of courtly love and poetic notions of goodness.
The chimera in European culture, was a mythological creature who created a sensation wherever he went. The Buenos Aries Tango presented by the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra will deliver a ‘fire breathing’ expose of sensual awesome music for lovers of all ages. Book Tickets Now
