The concert of Astor Piazzolla’s music at the Sinfonia Varsovia for Its City Festival is a good opportunity to think about what connects us – the inhabitants of Central Europe – to works from South America.

The tango was one of the most popular dances of the budding pop culture in the interwar period. Just like Fryderyk Chopin a hundred years before him – who did not, after all, invent the piano, the mazurka or the polonaise – the artist takes on a familiar theme, already popular and a part of the urban folklore, and (also like Chopin) extracts it from the common context to create a piece of timeless originality. The result seems distant, but also universal and close at the same time. Although the tango was danced in the hot spots and streets of Buenos Aires, Varsovians knew it too.

The highest quality of the universal charme of the tango will be presented by Klaudiusz Baran – a virtuoso of the bandoneon, just like Piazzolla, and one of the leading experts and propagators of his work. He will be accompanied by Sinfonia Varsovia conducted by its concertmaster, Jakub Haufa. We are going to hear the greatest examples of Piazzolla’s uniqueness and artistry, but also of his artistic communicativeness, including his concert for bandoneon and orchestra Aconcagua, named after the highest peak of the Andes by Aldo Pagani, the publisher of the score, who considered this work to be Piazzolla’s peak achievement.
