Tribute to Piazzolla
Astor Piazzolla brought the Argentine tango into the world of classical concert music without losing any of its original fascination. In a sense, what Piazzolla means for Argentina is Richard Galliano for France. If Piazzolla loves the bandoneon, Galliano prefers the accordion instead. With Claude Debussy, the harp gives his light and floating dances antique elegance. Béla Bartók explores all the possibilities of the string orchestra in his captivating and masterfully shaped divertimento. Influences of Hungarian folk music are combined with those of Viennese classical music, up to the divertimenti of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
