Quotes & Highlights

“A percussive, demonstrative pianist, he has a rigorous command of harmony and a knack for steel-girded ornamentation.” —_The New York Times _
“He leads the charge, inflaming the emotions and inciting all those who are fortunate enough to bear witness to his continuing musical charm” —_New York Jazz Report _

Description

Pablo Ziegler, the master of Argentine nuevo tango music, who has dazzled Europe, Japan, Canada, Amsterdam and Turkey with his sultry mix of tango and jazz performances, comes to Symphony Space for a rare concert appearance. This exciting evening with Ziegler at the piano and musicians on bandoneóon, percussion, strings and more, features classical renditions of works from each of his eight stellar recordings.

While Pablo Ziegler is known to the jazz world through his touring to venues such as the Bimhuis in Amsterdam and his annual performances at the Jazz Standard in New York City, the Beyond Tango program focuses on his classical music and involves different instrumentation. For example, the electric guitar is now replaced by cello. The evening progresses from piano solo, through trio, quartet, quintet and finally large chamber ensemble playing mostly Ziegler’s compositions, but including some of his own arrangements of the Piazzolla two-piano pieces which he recorded with Emanuel Ax. Don’t miss this unforgettable night fusing tango, Latin rhythms and virtuosic improvisation.
