Flexibility is the Name of the Game at The Garlands
Tiny Footprint Tango Tour
This is an argentine tango concert by the billboard top 10 musicians of Cuarteto Tanguero. Bandoneon player Ben Bogart and pianist Winnie Cheung explore an expressive range of tango music. “When we take the stage, our job is to transport you to a different place: wherever ‘tango’ is for you,” Winnie explains. The duo performs pieces from tango’s formative years in Argentina in the 1920s and the later “Big Tango” sound of the Golden Age, as well as the European and American dance repertoire influenced by pre-war tango dance craze. For all that history, tango is also a contemporary world art, so the duo is just as likely to play pieces composed last year.
