Two brilliant contemporary pianists share the stage in a program featuring two-piano arrangements of tango music. One of the foremost pianists of his generation, Christopher O’Riley is known for breaking down barriers between classical and popular music, regularly performs as a soloist with the world’s leading orchestras, and is host of NPR’s From the Top. Latin Grammy Award-winning pianist, composer, and arranger Pablo Ziegler launched his career performing in the legendary quintet of tango master Astor Piazzolla, and has since become the face of Argentine New Tango, a fascinating hybrid of tango and American jazz.
