Nuevo Tango, Bandoneón, & Ravel’s Bolero: Nashville Symphony November 19-21

Incorporates elements of jazz and classical music

Piazzolla performances to be recorded for future CD release

From the Nashville Symphony:
Schermerhorn Symphony Center will crackle with the bracing, sensuous rhythms of the tango as Giancarlo and the Nashville Symphony perform works by Astor Piazzolla, whose nuevo tango style incorporates elements of jazz and classical music. The Argentine composer was also a master of the accordion-like bandoneón, an instrument that his countryman, the renowned Daniel Binelli, will bring to life in Piazzolla's "Aconcagua" concerto. Keep dancing through intermission as the evening draws to a rousing finish with the hypnotic rhythms and dynamic orchestration of Ravel's always popular Boléro.

There's been a renewed interest in Astor Piazzolla's compositions in recent years, and the Nashville Symphony will be helping to promote that interest by recording the three Piazzolla pieces for future release on the Naxos record label. You'll want to be in the audience for this special performance!

Tickets start at just $37.50! You may purchase tickets online at, by calling 615.687.6400 or in person at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center Box Office.

Special thanks to series sponsor SunTrust, concert sponsor Vanderbilt University Medical Center and media sponsor Nashville Scene.
