SYMPHONIC TANGO ignites the audience’s passion on a grand scale with musically sophisticated repertoire, heartfelt songs and elegant Tango dance choreographies. The programs feature violin soloist Leonardo Suarez Paz and original arrangements and compositions by A. Piazzolla and L. Suarez Paz that demonstrate the virtuosic qualities of the orchestra and the genre’s classical influences.
The repertoire includes the tango violin concerto Nuevos Aires (L.Suarez Paz) with bandoneon and cello concertante, which premiered in 2017 in New York and a special arrangement of Escualo, composed by A. Piazzolla in dedication to Fernando Suarez Paz, among other compositions.
“Leonardo Suarez Paz - Tango Master of the 21st Century” (LATINA, Japan) has appeared as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Spoleto and Umbria Jazz Festivals in Italy and arranged and composed for numerous artists including the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Many classical musicians have relied on this fierce authentic style and expertise in the genre for their own tango projects, including virtuoso violinist Augustin Hadelich (Historie du Tango), Neave Trio (Celebrating Piazzolla), Carlos Franzetti (Piertot et Colombine, Circo de Arrabal, violin concerto Reflexiones, Tangos) among others. Leonardo Suarez Paz and choreographer Olga Suarez Paz have performed and brought their productions to the Teatro Colon Opera House, CCK and Teatro Alvear in Buenos Aires, the Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony for a live performance.
