Quinteto Astor Piazzolla (Argentina)
For the first time in Russia!
Following the passing of the renowned Argentine composer and bandoneon player, Astor Piazzolla, his wife Laura Escalada Piazzolla founded the Astor Piazzolla Foundation with the mission of preserving and promoting the maestro’s artistic legacy. The Quinteto Astor Piazzolla was formed in 1998 with five outstanding virtuoso musicians who share the aesthetic views of the maestro and were greatly influenced by his creative manner. The collective took on the responsibility of interpreting and preserving the vast legacy of the composer who revolutionised the tango.
Over the 25 years of its existence, the Quinteto Astor Piazzolla has toured extensively in the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia, won the recognition of professionals and received important international awards, such as the Latin Grammy for Best Tango Album of 2019.
