“Piazzolla Tango Night” is a soulful recital dedicated to the great composer Astor Piazzolla, the one who revolutionized the Argentinian tango music and who made it known to the general public through particularly beautiful works such as “Oblivion” or “Libertango”.
Astor Piazzolla is Argentina’s groundbreaking composer, who was initially criticized for his bold tango compositions, not being liked by the old tango music guard.
But his talent and genius have proven over time that the artist Astor Piazzolla is truly a visionary, and his works and compositions remain proof of the free spirit of tango.
So, tonight you will enjoy some of the most beautiful Argentinian tangos composed by the great composer.
Iulia Merca, first soloist of the Romanian National Opera in Cluj Napoca, is well-known to the Cluj audience for her beautiful operatic roles.
With a concert-solo activity of over 20 years, with many awards won during her career, she confirms the value of her talent every time she appears on stage. In love with tango music, Iulia will give life to famous works such as “Maria de Buenos Aires” or “Chiquilin de Bachin”.
Irina Indrei and Robert Indrei form a couple both on stage and in everyday life. Irina is a piano teacher at the “Sigismund Toduță” Music College in Cluj Napoca, and Robert is the first Romanian to play the bandoneon (instrument specific to Argentinian tango) in an orchestra.
They have been performing together for more than 6 years, being present at tango festivals in the country and abroad, and having the honour to perform at the invitation of the Royal House at Peleș Castle.
The three protagonists from this evening are part of “the Cluj Tango Orchestra”, the first Argentinian tango orchestra in Transylvania, composed of professional Romanian musicians, members of the Transylvania State Philharmonic or the National Opera of Cluj Napoca.
So, a tribute to the great composer Astor Piazzolla!
The host of this event is the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography, a well-known cultural centre of Cluj where exceptional cultural events take place, which always bring joy to the general public.
We look forward to welcoming you to our tango story!
