RETROSPECTIVE: ÉMIGRÉ | CLOSER – TO AND FROM BUENOS AIRES

It’s a couple of days since our Émigré series kicked off with our concert of Argentinean tango music at Village Underground, and we’ve loved reading about your experiences. Whether you were with us in person (with or without dancing shoes) or watching online, it looks like you enjoyed this magnificent music by Piazzolla, Bartók, and Golijov as much as we did.

“there was plenty to enjoy, not least the tightness of the ensemble and the sultry, deep sonorities” – Hannah Nepil, The Financial Times

What did you think? Did our concert put a tango fire in your belly? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

If you missed the concert, or want to experience it all over again, here are some pictures from the evening, and don’t forget, you can still watch the whole concert online until Thursday 5 March.

The next concert in our Émigré series is a modern-day tale of immigration from Russia to the USA with the brilliant Ljova, whose music is an exhilarating mix of classical, Russian folk, jazz, Balkan Gypsy, and Klezmer.
