Tribute to Piazzolla tomorrow evening
Born in Madrid and of Peruvian descent, violinist Leticia Moreno has strong ties with Latin America. She usually goes to Peru each year to perform, but elsewhere in South America she has been inspired by a composer from the land of the tango – the Argentine Astor Piazzolla, who was born in March 1921.
Piazzolla, whose instrument speciality was the bandoneon, revolutionised traditional tango and thus created “nuevo tango”, which incorporated elements of the classics and jazz.
Leticia Moreno, who received the highest degree ever at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London for her final recital, is the Balearic Symphony Orchestra’s latest invited soloist. This week’s concert is a tribute to Piazzolla, she having recorded an album entitled ‘Piazzolla’ for Deutsche Grammophon.
