Join us in celebrating 100 years of Astor Piazzolla with the quintet formed in his honor. The worldwide tour pays homage to the great composer by reflecting and revisiting his extensive creative career, combining and contrasting both his classical and popular repertoire in the same concert, and exploring a history of intensity, passion and genius.
With more than 20 years of worldwide performances, Quinteto Astor Piazzolla continues to promote the endlessly unique repertoire of the great composer and musician Astor Piazzolla, reviving the sound in the current landscape and bringing it to new audiences around the globe who have yet to experience the magic of this music.
The quintet was Piazzolla's preferred ensemble, and it was the medium through which he developed the sound of Nuevo Tango, thus becoming a trademark of his performance career.
This legacy group, founded by Laura Escalada Piazzolla, is integrated by world-class musicians who perform Piazzolla's original arrangements for quintet with an unmatched degree of virtuosic skill and rich artistic interpretation, remaining stylistically loyal to the sound of Piazzolla.
