PabloZieglerTango meets classical music as Canadian violin virtuoso Karen Gomyo, Latin Grammy-winning pianist Pablo Ziegler and his quartet, and pianist Cory Smythe perform works from Bach, Brahms, Bartok, and Piazzolla. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance, and intensity,” Gomyo has performed as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic; Los Angeles Philharmonic; Vancouver and Tokyo symphonies; Hong Kong Philharmonic; the National Symphony of Washington, D.C.; the Royal Scottish National Orchestra; and many others. She also is deeply interested in the Nuevo Tango music of Astor Piazzolla and the classical composers who influenced him—and it just so happens that Ziegler, known for artfully blending classic tango rhythms with jazz improvisations, is a former member of Astor Piazzolla’s New Tango Quintet. Ziegler’s own quartet includes Hector del Curto (bandoneon), Claudio Ragazzi (electric guitar), and Pedro Giraudo (double bass).
