Carla Kountoupes, Andrew Nickles and Oscar Macchioni
Sat. 4/7, 4:15p: Carla Kountoupes´ violin makes you feel the breeze of Buenos Aires Autumn as Astor Piazzolla imagined; Oscar Macchioni´s piano captivates the playful mistery of Primavera Porteña, and the cello in Andrew Nickles´ hands intensifies the essential complicity for a piece like "Compadre".
On Corazón Tanguero, hostess Cristina Baccin speaks with Carla Kountoupes about their inspiration to work with Piazzolla´s compositions as a "da Camera" ensemble. She´ll play live some excerpts of their just released "Piazzolla da Camera" album.
