Pedro Giraudo and his tango superstars take us on a tour of Astor Piazzolla’s music, showing the transformation of tango from small cafes, bars and dance halls into the world of the concert hall. Piazzolla’s legacy of composing tango as concert music opened the door to the classical world, and to leading contemporary composers and performers like Pedro Giraudo himself, who continue to evolve tango even further into the world of chamber music.

Subject to availability, $12 Student Rush (with student ID), $30 General Admission, $45 Preferred, and $80 Premium tickets may be purchased at the box office on the evening of the concert. The box office will open at 6:30 PM that day.

Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

Latin GRAMMY winner Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is a virtuoso quartet that elegantly brings the beauty and passion of the tango repertoire into the world of chamber music.

The Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is widely acknowledged as one of the most compelling tango ensembles today, moving forward from the giant footsteps of Astor Piazzolla, and continuing to take this musical genre into new territories. With immense respect for its roots and rich musical past, the ensemble effectively serves as an active ambassador of tango and a proponent of its evolution. The quartet’s fervent and virtuosic musical style takes elements from Argentine tango, European classical music, and American jazz, and combines them gracefully and organically, bringing something new and exciting to the form while retaining all the lushness and beauty that characterizes the genre.
