about the bandoneon
Articulation & Phrasing club
This group class is a detailed study of two elements of music that are of vital to every tango musician.
Step by step we will work in various aspects of each of these subjects: the construction of phrases, their connection, extension, overlapping; the application of legato, staccato, and other types of articulation. Beginning with general language of the genre and moving towards the particular styles within tango.
about HECTOR DEL CURTO
Praised by the New York Times as a “splendid player,” GRAMMY-winning Argentinean bandoneonist Héctor Del Curto’s career, spanning more than thirty years, has encompassed the traditional Tango, New Tango, Jazz, Classical and World music. He was the youngest member to join the legendary Osvaldo Pugliese’s Orchestra and shared the stage with many Tango luminaries including Astor Piazzolla, the master of New Tango. He has performed with leading orchestras such as Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Saint Louis Symphony, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.
Born into four generations of bandoneon players, Mr. Del Curto was introduced to the bandoneon by his grandfather, Héctor Cristobal. He directed the show Forever Tango on Broadway and founded the Eternal Tango Orchestra (now the Hector Del Curto Tango Orchestra).
Mr. Del Curto recently produced and released an awarding-winning album, Live at 2016 Stowe Tango Music Festival. He also produced an album, Eternal Piazzolla, featuring his celebrated quintet and Eternal Tango, which was featured on BBC News and Public Radio International’s The World. He appears in numerous recordings with such artists as Osvaldo Pugliese, Astor Piazzolla, Pablo Ziegler, Paquito D’Rivera, Tito Puente and Plácido Domingo.
Mr. Del Curto is the founding Artistic Director of the Stowe Tango Music Festival, the premier tango music festival in the United States.
