Tango was born around 1880 in Buenos Aires and Montevideo as dance music, but by the 1940ʼs it was introduced to the concert hall. Since then tango has inspired many composers to write concert music for this globally popular dance. We will feature some of the masters of tango including Astor Piazzolla, Luis Pasquet, and Aníbal Troilo.
