Scott Flavin, conductor
Maria Schneider, host
A night of Argentine soul. Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) revolutionized tango with new musical sophistication and intoxicating rhythmic intensity, captivating audiences around the globe. The superb classical and jazz artists of the Henry Mancini Orchestra explore Piazzolla’s melancholy Midsummer Night’s Dream Suite, haunting Vuelvo al Sur, and captivating Fuga y Misterio, with new arrangements by HMI composition fellows and Frost jazz maestro Stephen Guerra. Also on tap are Osvaldo Golijov’s Last Round, a propulsive homage to Piazzolla for string orchestra; and songs by Argentine rock legend Luis Alberto Spinetta.
Maria Schneider recently won two GRAMMY® awards for her latest release Data Lords, in the categories of Best Large Jazz Ensemble and Best Instrumental Composition for “Sputnik.” Read more about the GRAMMY wins here.
