We take a trip south of the border and celebrate summer — in Buenos Aires, that is. Featured music includes Gidon Kremer's Vivaldi/Piazzola combo The Eight Seasons, plus music by Ezequiel Viñao, Osvaldo Golijov, and Hubert Klyne Headley's Piano Concerto No. 1, Argentango.
Argentinian-born and Juilliard trained, composer Ezequiel Viñao has made his home in New York for the last 27 years. In addition to his many awards and commissions, Viñao has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the Juilliard String Quartet, for whom he wrote his second quartet, "The Loss and the Silence." ...
Ezequiel Viñao writes densely-layered, evocative music that speaks to the distant past through a modern soundscape. The Argentine-American composer shares samples of his work and lends insight into his highly personal tonal language.
