Great Performances: Dudamel Conducts Tangos Under the Stars

Saturday, September 22, at 8pm on CET Arts

Gustavo Dudamel accents the colors, rhythms and passion of music by leading composers from Argentina in this invigorating evening under the stars on Dudamel Conducts Tangos Under the Stars with the LA Phil – recorded at the Hollywood Bowl.

With guitarist Angel Romero, bandoneon player Seth Asarnow, and dancers from Tango Buenos Aires, maestro Dudamel leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic in works by the Astor Piazzolla, once described by Stephen Holden in The New York Times as "the world's foremost composer of tango music,” symphonic composer Alberto Ginastera (who was Piazzolla’s teacher), and film score composer Lalo Schifrin (Mission Impossible), a friend of the late Piazzolla.
