Astor Piazzolla’s Heritage - The Magic of the Tango in the Piano Music of Saul Cosentino
Cosentino’s piano selections are wonderful contemporary recital repertoire and represent excellent contemporary pedagogical material. Cosentino synthesized Piazzolla’s tango with Western musical aspects, defining the avant-garde tango for piano. His music employs extended harmonies, jazz components, counterpoint, and dissonance. This lecture-recital will offer a performance of Cosentino’s most significant piano works together with selections of composers who inspired and influenced him.
