ÍNDIGO DÚO and María José Torres
7 May | 20:0015,00€
PIANTAOS is a musical performance by ÍNDIGO DÚO & MARÍA JOSÉ TORRES, conceived as a tribute to the great Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla – the great renovator of tango – who, on 11 March 2021, would have turned 100 years old, and whose work is still as relevant as the first day. It is not in vain that Piazzolla once said that he had an illusion, “that his work would be heard in 2020, and in 3001 as well”.
The musical selection is basically made up of the Argentine maestro’s most recognisable repertoire, including such well-known tangos as Adiós Nonino, Balada para un loco and Vuelvo al sur, to name but a few. The show will also include the instrumental piece “Tango Suite”, by Piazzolla himself, and two new compositions by Leandro Ariel Martin and Víctor Landeira, world premieres. Vibrant rhythms alongside more leisurely ones, with the constant presence of Buenos Aires, at times almost as just another character and at other times as an urban theatre in which diverse beings from the outskirts of the city coexist.
Raised in New York, Astor Piazzolla returned to Argentina as a young man with a bandoneon his father had given him and with his sights set on transforming the traditional popular tango. The influence of classical music and his taste for jazz and other contemporary forms such as rock, as well as the knowledge acquired during his stays in France and Italy, together with his time in the USA, brought him closer to a modern tango, rich in instrumentation and exquisite to the ear.
Piantaos is, in short, a journey through the most significant aspects of Piazzolla’s long musical career. A work that moves away from the tradition of classical tango to, paradoxically, take it back to its origins: an ensemble of guitar, flute and voice.
Astor Piazzolla’s compositions have acquired a universal dimension, an enormous recognition both from the public and from specialised critics and music professionals, which is why it is inevitable to pay tribute to his work and his era, even from a small island in the middle of the Atlantic.
