Argentine Classical Composers and the Tango - Estela Telerman (piano)
The Argentine tango is to be found ever more frequently in the concert hall in the form of Piazzolla as the classical world increasingly embraces his tango nuevo. Pre-eminent Argentine concert pianist and musicologist, Estela Telerman, has made a career from the historical study of 'classical' tango, which pre-dates Piazzolla as far back as the inception of tango itself in the late 19th century.
A leading authority in this field, Telerman presents a unique lecture-recital exploring the relationship between Argentine classical composers and the tango, addressing the evolution of the genre from 1867 to the present day, from a hybrid form of the habanera, through tango proper, concert tango and deconstructed tango. Piazzolla enthusiasts and others will find much to discover in this essential guide to one of tango's lesser-known branches.
You can join us at 7.00pm for a complimentary pre-concert wine reception.
Tickets: £10 in advance 020 7534 0710 - £14 on the door - admission free to ILAMS members
