Quinteto Astor Piazzolla
“The playing by this quintet – modeled on the one Piazzolla himself led – is brilliantly assured."
– BBC Music Magazine
The soul-stirring sound of tango in its most authentic form comes to The Soraya, brought directly to us by Laura Escalada Piazzolla, the wife of the late maestro Astor Piazzolla. Formed by Astor Piazzolla himself during the ’60s, the group caused a sensation with its provocative sound. After the composer’s death, the ensemble carried on the legacy with five virtuoso soloists capable of interpreting the vast body of work left by the maestro.
On their Revolucionario Tour, the quintet will play throughout the Americas, Asia, and Europe. The tour is named after the album which Songlines called “Top of the World” in their 2019 20th Anniversary special issue
