Firebird Trio - Tango Salon

Firebird Trio

Details

Take a sultry sojourn into the music and dance forms of Spain and Latin America.

From tango to milonga and vals to flamenco, featuring works by Argentine composers Alberto Ginastera, Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel and Spaniards Joaquin Turina and Isaac Albeniz. Merging studied technique with one hot summer night, this is a performance that will smash through classical sensibilities.

Firebird Trio welcomes artistic collaborators, Argentine Tango dancers Nadim and Rina from Tango Esencia as they weave this magical dance form into the soulful music of Buenos Aires – a rare treat and specially curated for the intimacy of the Salon.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Firebird Trio
