HBU Ensemble-in-residence Concert
Argentina Siglo XX
Tuesday, November 19, 7:30 pm
Belin Chapel, Morris Cultural Arts Center
The Terra Nostra Ensemble begins the season with a journey to the southern tip of South America. Argentina is most famous for its tangos, and the Nuevo Tango style popularized by Astor Piazzolla, which bridges classical and folk traditions. In that spirit, this program includes Ginastera’s String Quartet No. 1, and professor Oliveros’ arrangements of the classic song “Alfonsina y el Mar,” and a set of tangos. The set of tangos will feature internationally renowned Venezuelan violinist and conductor, Eddy Marcano.
