Piazzolla da camera
Mon 14 July 2014, 1.00pm
The Piazzolla Da Camera Trio celebrates ten years dedicated to the exclusive performance of the works of modern tango master Astor Piazzolla. Having travelled the world to bring attention to the beauty and bravado of what audiences and critics have celebrated as ‘exquisitely Argentine’ and ‘simply delicious in execution’, this brotherhood of musicians strive to look beyond the written note, and bring to light the rich colours and sounds of the Buenos Aires cityscape.

Trio Tango Extremo
Tue 22 July 2014, 1.00pm
(Not an ILAMS concert, but one we highly recommend!)
Tango Extremo brings a distinctive flavour to the passion and persuasion of the Argentine Tango. The ensemble, which is under the direction of the young violinist Tanya Schaap, is not a standard tango orchestra. The line up is slightly unusual (with the addition of soprano saxophone) and the group combines musical styles which are very diverse. Juxtaposing an exciting mixture of classical, jazz, improvisation and Brazilian music with tango, the trio will perform arrangements of pieces by Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Shaffy, Cabral, Brel, Piazzolla, Plaza and Laurenz, all in the tango style.
