Estela Telerman: 'Argentine Classical Composers and the Tango (1867-2008)'

Fri 29 May 2015, 7.30pm
Schott Music Recital Room
48 Great Marlborough Street
London
W1F 7BB
United Kingdom

'Estela Telerman’s work represents a landmark in the historiography of Argentine music.' La Nación

The Argentine tango is to be found ever more frequently in the concert hall as classical audiences continue to be seduced by the tango nuevo of Astor Piazzolla. Pre-eminent Argentine concert pianist and musicologist, Estela Telerman, has made a career of the historical study of 'classical' tango, which in fact pre-dates Piazzolla as far back as the inception of tango itself in the late 19th century. A leading authority in this field, Telerman presents a unique recital-lecture exploring the relationship between Argentine classical composers and the tango, addressing the evolution of the genre from 1867 to the present day. The programme traces the trajectory of the tango from a hybrid form derived from the habanera, through tango proper, concert tango and deconstructed tango. Piazzolla enthusiasts will find much to discover in this essential guide to one of tango's lesser-known branches.
