Austin Piazzola Quintet
Thursday, September 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$15
The Austin Piazzolla Quintet specializes in the music of the late Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla as well as original nuevo tango compositions. James Anderson (violin), Jonathan Geer (piano), Mike Maddux (accordion, bandoneon), Tony Rogers (cello), and Phil Spencer (bass), feature unique arrangements of Piazzolla’s groundbreaking works, breathtaking original compositions, and fiery improvisation. They’ve released 4 albums: Libertango (2010), Lo Que Vendra (2013), self-titled Austin Piazzola Quartet (2015), Angels & Devils (2017). In the spring of 2016, APQ was invited by the world renown Colorado Ballet to perform the world premier of The Angel of Buenos Aires-based on the titular characters of two of Piazzolla’s most loved suites of music – Suite del Angel and Suite del Diablo which appears on the current recording alongside two riveting originals from violinist Anderson, the baroque-inspired Milonga Passacaglia and But a Whimper.
