Lo que vendrá

November 6, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Celebrate the centenary of legendary Argentine composer, Astor Piazzolla with a genre-defying marathon concert featuring the artist’s instrumental and vocal music for tango orchestra, classical and jazz ensemble, operita, and the silver screen.

Curated and directed by acclaimed bandoneonist Shinjoo Cho, this marathon is both a retrospective and a contemplation of the future featuring Piazzolla’s works more riveting than those often heard in the concert halls, in their original instrumentations. The works of Piazzolla’s mentors and peers, such as Anibal Troilo, Alberto Ginastera, Béla Bartók, and Duke Ellington, will be performed to show the music and the ideas that influenced him as a composer. Performed by 17 musicians from Philadelphia, NY, and Argentina, the concert will include a newly commissioned piece by Diego Schissi, one of Argentina’s most prominent living composers, for solo bandoneon and Orchestra 2001 featuring Shinjoo Cho as soloist.
