Event Details

Hear the Argentinian master, Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango, is an impressively modern take on the Argentinian dance staple: the tango. Piazzolla takes the simple but dramatic genre and infuses it with jazz, chromaticism, and dissonance; taking the listener on a wildly unique ride. Additionally, the audience will be dazzled by Edvard Greig’s Holberg Suite. Composed to celebrate the birth of Ludwig Holberg, Grieg takes on the various dance styles and compositional techniques popular at the time of Holberg’s life.
