Tonight's concert features guest artist and pianist, Latin Grammy Award winner, and foremost exponent of nuevo tango Pablo Ziegler, who will lead an all-star ensemble in New and Classic Tangos. He worked extensively as Ástor Piazzolla's regular pianist from 1978 until that master's retirement in 1989. He played with Piazzolla's re-formed Conjunto 9 in 1983 for his Teatro Colón concert with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic. In 1985 Ziegler composed the music for the film Adios Roberto, and in 1990, he established the New Tango Quartet.
