Misatango is a brilliant pairing of the ancient Latin Mass text with the exhilarating rhythms and melodic features of Argentinian tango. Composed in 1996, this six-movement work features chorus, mezzo-soprano soloist, bandoneón, piano, and string orchestra. Martin Palmeri, age 51, is prize-winning Argentinian composer and conductor who wrote that his objective in this composition was to maintain the harmonic language, rhythms, melodic designs, and other characteristics of the tango within the orchestra score, thus allowing the chorus freedom to “just sing the mass.”
The program also features Domenico Zipoli’s exuberant Beatus Vir as well as works by other Argentinian composers, including Astor Piazzolla, Alberto Ginastera, and Pablo Sosa.
