The festival programme of this year cannot ignore the commemoration of the centenary of Astor Piazzolla, whose name is inseparably bound with the history of the South-American tango. Following the virtuoso ensemble Triango, heard by the BMF visitors several years ago, comes another ensemble dedicated to the works of the Argentinian composing genius.
In their project five well-known Slovak musicians forming the ensemble Slovak Nuevo Quinteto have decided to focus on the works of the maestro who merged the world of tango with classical music in his compositions in an original way. The instrumental line-up reflects a combination of several ‘Piazzolla’s ensembles’.
