Tartan & Tango

This performance replaces New World Symphony, originally scheduled for Friday, October 23, and Saturday, October 24.

Intoxicating Spanish rhythms highlight the performance by hometown favorite, guitarist Jason Vieaux, in this program conducted by JoAnn Falletta featuring two tangos from Argentinean master Astor Piazzolla: Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) and Libertango. Combined with Puccini’s Crisantemi, a poignant and dramatic elegy for a fallen friend, and the beauty and yearning for the Highlands in Bantock’s Celtic Symphony, this program expresses a full range of emotion.

This performance is part of our BPOnDemand video-streamed series. There will be no live audience at Kleinhans Music Hall for this performance. For more information on BPOnDemand, please visit our 2020-21 season FAQ page.
