Ivano Battiston, a true expert and poet of the accordion, is offering a programme dedicated to the centennial birth of Astor Piazzolla, placing the great Argentinian musician right next to two Tuscan composers: Bernardo Pasquini from Pistoia and Domenico Zipoli from Prato.
Piazzolla’s compositions, which open the concert, and which were written in the 1950’s, belong to his more traditional repertory while those at the central part of the concert are those of the so-called “Tango Nuevo”, and are more experimental. The concert will close with the great Argentinian musican’s most popular and well-known pieces. One curious fact: Piazzolla’s origins are partially Tuscan! One of the composer’s grandmothers was actually from Massa Rossorosso, near Collemandina in the province of Lucca.
