Tango for two guitars
Although most people associate Tango with the Bandoneon, the guitar was the instrument involved in the first attempts of this music, back in the early 1900s, and replaced afterwards for this peculiar accordeon.
Oliver Thedieck and Esteban Colucci will present a program that brings out the sonorities of the first tangos (Carlos Gardel, etc) together with modern tango music represented by Astor Piazzolla.
Esteban Colucci (Argentina) began his music studies at the age of 5 and graduated with honors in the Conservatory Manuel de Falla, in Buenos Aires. With 9 solo recordings and a repertory spanning from Baroque to Tango, he is one of the foremost representatives of the young generation of his country.
