Music of Argentina

Hector Del Curto & Tango Trio

Last concert of the Festival will feature music from Argentina, from traditional Argentinian tangos to the ingenious music of Piazzolla played by the Eternal Tango Trio with Argentinian star Héctor Del Curto on the bandoneon, Alon Yavnai on the piano and Jisoo Ok on the cello.

Praised by the New York Times as a "splendid player", Argentinean bandoneónist Héctor Del Curto has captivated the audiences around the world as a soloist and chamber musician, sharing the stage with the world–renowned tango legends Astor Piazzolla and Osvaldo Pugliese, pianist Pablo Ziegler, clarinetist Paquito D´Rivera, ballet dancer Julio Bocca, National Symphony Orchestra (Washington D.C.), Buenos Aires Symphony Orchestra and Teatro Colón Ballet among many others.

After a Carnegie Hall concert in April 1999 with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and outstanding artists such as Gary Burton, Joe Lovano, Pablo Ziegler, famous tango singers José Angel Trelles and Maria Graña, the New York Times highlighted Mr. Del Curto´s artistry, making special mention of his "wistful, piercing solos on the bandoneón."

Since 2003, Eternal Tango Trio has performed at Lincoln Center Summer Festival, Hudson River Park Trust Moon Dance Series, Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts, Stowe Tangofest in Vermont, NY Tango Festival, Resonance–World Music Festival in Cleveland, Embajada Argentina in Washington D.C., Festival Iberoamericano de las Artes in Puerto Rico and Le Carrefour Mondial de l'accordion in Quebec among other festivals and venues. He has produced a new critically acclaimed CD, Héctor Del Curto´s Eternal Tango on Green Parrot Records and it was successfully released at Jazz Standard on June 18, 2007.
