Chamber Music Amici
Tango and More

Sunday February 262017 2:00 PM

We hope you can join us for this  exciting afternoon of chamber music featuring Chamber Music Amici one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier chamber ensembles.  Guest artists Lillie Manis and Valerie Nelson (both violinists) will join Amici regulars  violist Jessica Lambert, cellist Steve Pologe, and pianist Victor Steinhardt.

Tango and More

Turina, Piano Trio No. 2 in B Minor

Steinhardt, Tango and Scherzo

Lee, Morango...Almost a Tango

Piazzolla, La Muerte del Angel

Schulhoff, Five Pieces for String Quartet

The program opens with a composition that reveals the influence of French Impressionism, melodic vocabulary, and rhythmic patterns of Turina’s Spanish heritage.  Inspiration from a postcard depicting Argentinian tango dancers led to Steinhardt’s Tango and Scherzo.    Lee’s composition was originally a bar jazz tune, rewritten for the Kronos Quartet, and later reborn again as a bastardized version of the real thing.  Piazzola’s style, nuevo tango, a fusion of traditional tango, classical music and jazz, is shown off in this tribute to an angel who descends to Buenos Aires to help heal the spirits but is killed in a knife fight.  Schulhoff’s passion for dancing led to this Neo-Baroque dance suite inspired by five different styles of dance music.
