Barcos and the Extraordinary Journey of Tango!

Thursday, 11th July 2019 : 7.30pm


Le Page Ensemble presents a special summer concert on Thursday 11th July at 7.30pm at Southwell Library. In 2016, Le Page Ensemble joined forces with Argentinian bandoneon player and composer Eduardo Garcia to record Barcos, an album of his extraordinary Tango influenced works. In addition to the works composed by Garcia for the bandoneon and string quartet, the album also features music by the renowned Argentinian visionary Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) whose uncompromising musical innovations completely changed the face of Tango over four decades. Garcia’s music is inspired by the life-changing journey across the Atlantic made by Europeans seeking a new life in the Americas. Tickets available from Southwell Library, Adults £15, concessions £12.00.
