For decades, Buenos Aires-born, Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Ziegler has been one of the most important figures in Argentine New Tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of traditional tango, American jazz, and European art music. After performing in tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla’s legendary quintet for over a decade and appearing on iconic Piazzolla recordings including Tango: Zero Hour, La Camorra and Central Park Concert, Ziegler’s music now refines and reimagines the bounds of the modern tango tradition. Recent seasons have seen Ziegler performing at major venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Montreal Jazz Festival, Tokyo Jazz Festival, and many others. Ziegler’s Jazz Tango won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Album.
Grammy winner, Emmy winner, and Emmy nominated film composer Claudio Ragazzi has been writing award winning music for film and television, scoring dozens of projects and performing with some of today’s most respected musicians at renowned concert halls in the world. He scored the MIRAMAX Film “Next Stop Wonderland”, the award winning Goldheart Productions “The Blue Diner”, John Sayle’s “Casa de los Babys” in collaboration with Mason Daring, and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tetro” in collaboration with Osvaldo Golijov. Claudio’s music can also be heard in “Something’s Gotta Give” starring Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton and Keanu Reeves.
Argentinean bandoneonist Hector Del Curto’s career has encompassed the traditional Tango, New Tango, Jazz, Classical and World music. As a most sought-after bandoneonist, he has performed with luminaries across many musical genres including Joe Lovano and Regina Carter. He has appeared with prestigious orchestras such as Metropolitan Opera, St. Louis Symphony, National Symphony, Orpheus Chamber and more.
