Rossen Milanov, conductor
Bella Hristova, violin

Program:
GOLIJOV: Last Round
PIAZZOLLA: The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
GINASTERA: Variaciones Concertantes

South American fireworks ignite as the CSO wraps up the 2015-16 Masterworks season with a tribute to tango featuring The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by tango master Astor Piazzolla, a charming and spicy, yet playfully modern, set of four violin concertos. The program also offers in-demand composer Osvaldo Golijov’s unique and ingenious Last Round, a tango-flavored work inspired by Piazzolla, and a brilliant showpiece by Ginastera that focuses the spotlight on the orchestra’s principal players. 

Accompaniments:

 Postlude – Join our performers at the Thurber Bar following Friday’s concert or watch our post-concert tango demonstrations while enjoying Argentinian wine on Saturday night!
