Santiago Quartet performs BIRTHDAY QUARTET

Santiago Quartet performs BIRTHDAY QUARTET

The Santiago Quartet (Rowan Bell, violin / Johanna McWeeney, violin / Cressida Wislocki, viola / Jonathan Hennessey-Brown, cello) performs a varied programme accompanied by Julian Rowlands on bandoneon.

Programme

Piazzolla Milonga del Angel
Piazzolla Lo Que Vendra
Traditional Tangos: A Media Luz, Nostalgias, El Choclo
Piazzolla Anxiety
Piazzolla Oblivion
Will Todd Birthday Quartet
Piazzolla Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Of course, it is the spirit of the tango that pervades the concert, from three traditional tango tunes to the nuevo tango of Astor Piazzolla, exclusively arranged for string quartet and bandoneon, echoing the haunting sound of the composer’s own quintet. The quartet alone plays the Birthday Quartet, commissioned from Will Todd and described as ‘complex, approachable, moving and attractive’. The concert ends with Piazzolla’s soulfully descriptive evocation of the changing seasons in the Argentine capital.
