Enjoy a rhythmic musical tour of Peru and Argentina – all new to the ears of CCO audiences. The colors of Gabriela Lena Frank’s Elegía Andina (Andean Elegy) immediately summon the sounds of the Peruvian rain forest. Astor Piazzolla’s name is intertwined with the tango – not only as a composer, but as a player of the bandoneon. Bandoneon virtuoso Hector Del Curto, the 2019 Grammy Award winner for Best Latin Jazz Album, will be featured on a work by the national hero himself, Astor Piazzolla. Fernanda Ghi and Silvio Grand, legends in the world of Argentine tango, will bring the music to life.
