Piazzolla to warm your Friday night

Maggie Ferguson's new tango ensemble, Maggie Ferguson Tango and Friends is performing on the Central Coast north of Sydney on Friday June 2.... Antonio Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’ meets Astor Piazzolla’s ‘The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires’ in a stunning juxtaposition of musical styles, exemplifying the insistent rhythms and languid gestures of the Baroque and the sensual, abrupt mood changes of Latin American Tango. Piazzolla’s distinctive music combines jazz and the Argentinian tango of his native land with classical forms and 20th Century harmonic ideas. In 'The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires' , he takes a tango-inspired work and combines it with elements easily recognizable from Vivaldi, also presenting a solo violin featured within an orchestral texture in virtuosic style".
  The concert will be in the intimate, iconic Avoca Picture theatre. 69 Avoca Beach Drive, Avoca Beach. Entry $40, Concession $35, Student $15. Details and bookings http://avocabeachpicturethe
