Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic
In this tango night of the Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic series, the tango schools of South America and France meet. The concert opens with an outstanding ensemble from Buenos Aires, the Orquesta Típica “El Afronte”. It is characterised by the fact that it has internalised the classical tango as represented by Astor Piazzolla Tango Nuevo, but only plays its own, new compositions. In their own particular way, accordionist Vincent Peirani and the soprano saxophonist Émile Parisien, two rising stars of the French jazz scene, also devote themselves to the tango.
