Piazzolla Klassik Ensemble

Piazzolla Klassik Ensemble

The Piazolla Klassik Ensemble is a group consisting a classical string quartet and saxophone whose repertoire ranges from Baroque to jazz. As their name suggests, their musical focus is the work of the Argentinean tango composer, Astor Piazzolla.



As is evident in their name, the Piazzolla Klassik Ensemble's main musical focus is the work of Argentina's great tango composer, Astor Piazolla, who created a unique musical fusion between different style and time periods, blending classic and traditional ethnic music with popular melodies. The Piazzolla Klassik Ensemble was founded in November 2003 and consists of a number of internationally prize-winning soloists.

 

The ensemble combines the sound of a classical string quartet with the rich, brassy tones of the saxophone. As such, the ensemble is able to incorporate classic jazz, Baroque and modern works as well as Argentinean tango into their repertoire with a contemporary and artful style.
