The Piazzolla Project

7.30pm, August 25th & 26th, 2021

Classical music, tango and cabaret - from Kurt Weill to Schoenberg, from Carlos Gardel to Britten, these musical genres have always found ways to meet. To celebrate the music of tango composer Astor Piazzolla, the "cabaret kings" (The Londonist) join forces with two of London's most exciting classical musicians. Piazzolla's tango is the music of the cities, their poetry and chaos, their solitude and excitement.

Piazzolla was the figurehead of nuevo tango, new tango, he ripped tango out of the dance halls of Argentina to place it in the concert halls of the world. Music not to dance to, but to inspire, make us dream and take us to faraway places full of longing and passion.
