Tango Meets String Quartet

Sebastien Innocenti, bandoneon/accordion
With the Innocenti String Quartet

 

The Musical Offering welcomes Paris-based bandoneon artist Sebastien Innocenti as he takes us on a journey of musical discovery to combine the music of the tango with the sound of the traditional string quartet. The bandoneon is a type of concertina particularly popular in South America and in Europe, especially Lithuania.

The evening will include works by Astor Piazzola and Gustavo Beytelmann that were explicitly written for string quartet and bandoneon. Sebastien Innocenti's virtuosic and passionate bandoneon mastery will bring you the heat of Argentinian tango as he and the Chicago-based Innocenti String Quartet - led by Sebastien's brother Pascal Innocenti - collaborate to present this special concert event at the Musical Offering

The MO's intimate Madison Room provides the ideal acoustically-rich setting to enjoy this performance.
