Originally from Córdoba, Argentina, Pedro Giraudo has been a prominent figure on the tango scene for well over a decade, performing with the most important interpreters of tango in the United States, and attracting his own following among both tango dancers and music lovers. In 2015, Pedro officially launched a number of his own tango projects, the first of which was his full Pedro Giraudo Tango Orchestra, which debuted at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing. Other formations are a quartet, a trio, and a chamber septet, each comprised of some of today's finest virtuoso tango musicians.
Tonight's event will feature performances by all of them, along with a special guest appearance by vocalist Sofia Tosello.
". . . supple and sophisticated. . . an example of how a composer, especially one gleefully between traditions, can draw on an immense amount of music. It’s often brilliant, and it’s always careful. Highly recommended.” — Peter Watrous, Descarga.com
