Time & Location
About the Event
This is both in-person and video event. Livestream and extended video viewing through October 22, 2021 will require registration.
Alongside Piazzolla’s tangos, this program features works by Barbara Strozzi, Cacilda Borges Barbosa, Manuel Ponce, Lillian Yee, and Liduíno Pitombeira.
“Could the sensual and lurid allure of Argentine back alleys be conveyed fully by a brass ensemble, a listener might have wondered? Would the warmth of the bandoneon shine through at the back end? Axiom proved both in the positive. In their hands, the music of Piazzolla bloomed as well suited to the brass quintet format — they made Nuevo Tango seem almost intuitive for that family of instruments.” -- Edward Ortiz, San Francisco Classical Voice
