Poetry and Passion: The Music of Astor Piazzolla

Well-known violinist and entertainer, Lindsay Deutsch, performs with a small, conductorless chamber ensemble presenting the sultry jazz-tangos of the wildly popular Argentinian composer, Astor Piazzolla.

The infectious rhythm of the tango, combined with the high octane energy of these powerhouse performers, translates into a thrilling, roof-raising musical journey.

“Lindsay Deutsch brought just the right light and effervescent touch to the Argentinian music. She leaned into the jaunty, tango-inflected rhythms of the outer movements, struck sparks in the bravura cadenza, and brought melting tenderness to the nocturnal languor of Summer.” Chicago Classical Voice

“Moving about freely, Deutsch plunged into the music with brio, capitalizing on techniques associated with Piazzolla’s music, including glissandi and chicharra, or scraping sound. Deutsch was not at all reticent in emphasizing the passionate, sensual nature of Argentina’s national dance.” Eugene Register Guard
