Ciklas Fortepijono dramos, kartu su Kaunas Piano Fest

Didžioji scena

Sunday, November 5th, 2023

Where does tango come from and how many people and cultures have been captivated by its rhythms, song, and dance?

Our project aims to express the enormous breadth of the genre through a selection of pieces, each with a unique story, all of which are influenced by tango. A kind of international tango parade, this album  takes our listeners from Parisian salons to the small streets of Buenos Aires, through the United States and Eastern Europe. Many of the works we present are stories within stories, paying homage to earlier works in the form of arrangements and transcriptions.

This program is very personal: we present a new version of Piazzolla’s Four Seasons, created by our own clarinetist, Ž. Brazauskas and a commissioned work, “Foxtrot Romeo Juliet Hotel Tango” by J. Hoffman alongside mazurkas and contradanzas, themselves predecessors of tango. Stravinsky’s iconic “Tango” coexists with Ravel’s “Pièce en Forme de Habanera” and the concept of tango reveals itself to be malleable, as its rhythms and harmonies are explored and reimagined.

We‘d like to share our own fascination with an art form which has thrived for a century and a half, and which continues to shape us, just as we shape it, today.
