The first South American orchestra to appear in the series, the prestigious Buenos Aires Symphony Orchestra of Colón Opera makes a splash with this colourful and fizzy programme.

Multi-award-winning Argentinian conductor, Mariano Chiacchiarini, blends some of the dramatic and operatic showpieces for which the orchestra is renowned, including suites from Bizet’s passionate opera Carmen and Tchaikovsky’s masterful ballet Swan Lake, with works by his compatriot Astor Piazzolla.

One of the most important bandoneon players of his generation today, Pablo Mainetti showed a special interest in tango music as a child.

His command for the instrument, a type of concertina that gives the Argentinian tango its unique sound, will be showcased in Piazzolla’s ardently-crafted works for this distinctive instrument.


£22.95, £30.50 & £32.50 (includes fees)
