Tangos de Concierto (Tangos for concert hall)
Sun, May 21, 2017, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
Music Teachers Association of California, San Francisco branch proudly supports the first of its kind: a Tango piano book presentation and concert called “Tangos de Concierto” by Pablo Estigarribia. An award-winning Argentine Tango pianist, composer, and arranger, Mr. Estigarribia comes directly to us from Buenos Aires to share his music.
Tangos de Concierto contains 16 virtuosic tango pieces for solo piano. The main goal of this book is to bring tango repertoire to the concert halls and make this interesting music accessible to every musician worldwide--especially classically trained pianists. These pieces will have the rhythm and structure of tango, some contemporary harmony, and are written in classical music notation.
