The Choral Arts Society of Washington brings the passionate music and dance of Argentina to the Kennedy Center. Tango! Soul and Heart begins with two spiritual pieces -- Lamentations of Jeremiah, a sacred a cappella motet by Argentina's most famous composer, Alberto Ginastera, and Luis Bacalov's Misa Tango, a stunning mass that features the iconic sounds of the accordion-like bandonéon. The second half of the program finds participants performing traditional and classic tango works by such composers as Astor Piazzolla, while talented guest artists showcase the dance of passion in a dazzling display.

The NSO gave Matthew Halls all he wanted in a terrific, diverse set of suites. The opening suite gave me the visual of walking through a peaceful meadow, slowly gazing at a meandering creek. Accomplished guest cellist David Hardy joined the fold for an amazing solo during the second piece, travelling all the way down the A string to play a lilting, violin pitched note for a good 5 minutes. Sealing the 5 star review was the after show talk by Matthew Halls and David Hardy, as well my gf's enjoyment of the show.
Performance Timing: Part One - 43 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 44 min.
