Event Type

“Tango and Beyond” features musical works that highlight a genre that has captivated composers with its sensuous style and music throughout the 20th Century. “Tango and Beyond” will bring a classical flavor to the Argentine tango style and its connection to other genres. From tango master’s like Carlos Gardel and Le Pera favorites “El Dia que me Quieras”, “Mi Buenos Aires Querido” during the golden era of tango, to Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango with works like “Maria de Buenos Aires”. The influence of Habanera in the tango style extended to classical composers such as Bizet “Carmen’s Habanera”, Kurt Weill “Youvali” and Stravinsky “Tango”, and the romantic bolero tango by Maria Grever “Jurame“. Another feature piece,“Yiddishe Tango”, demonstrated the influence that tango had all over the world in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The concert will also feature contemporary American Composer Paul Schoenfield, who included a tango movement in his work “Four Souvenirs”, for violin and piano. The concert will be sang in many languages featuring Spanish, French, English and Yiddish because tango has transcended beyond cultures and time. Together with Alexandra pianist Paul Schawrzt, from Florida Grand Opera, Argentine bandoneonist Laura Cadabon and German and Rocio Felipeli.

This event is possible thanks to Alexandra Marie’s 2023 Artist Support Grant, Broward Cultural Division.
