Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet
- This event has passed.
The Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is widely acknowledged as one of the most compelling tango ensembles today, moving forward from the giant footsteps of Astor Piazzolla, and continuing to take this musical genre into new territories.
With immense respect for its roots and rich musical past, the New York City-based ensemble effectively serves as an active ambassador of tango and a proponent of its evolution. The quartet’s fervent and virtuosic musical style gracefully and organically combines elements from Argentine tango, European classical music, and American jazz.
As bassist, composer and arranger, Pedro Giraudo’s biography includes two decades performing with the most important interpreters of tango, including Paquito D’Rivera, Pablo Ziegler, Hector Del Curto, and Luis Bravo. He has also collaborated as a performer and arranger for the New York Philharmonic.
