The Philharmonic Society of Orange County presents the world premiere of Philippe Quint’s newest multimedia show, Astor Piazzolla at 100: A Musical Portrait with pianist Jun Cho. Quint’s narration leads the audience through a celebration of Piazzolla’s life on the centennial year of his birth through visual and musical depictions of the composer’s musical influences and personal relationships with figures such as Alberto Ginastera, Duke Ellington, Igor Stravinsky, Nadia Boulanger, and J.S. Bach. Breaking boundaries and revolutionizing traditional tango, Piazzolla introduced the world to tango nuevo: a fusion of tango, jazz, klezmer, and classical music. This defined him as the single most important figure in the history of the genre. Tickets can be purchased through the Philharmonic Society of Orange County and the concert will be available to watch for one week following the premiere.
