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.
