Bach to Toots

Melancholy, passion, determination, tenderness. It was Astor Piazzolla who elevated these typical emotions of the tango to an Art form. Together  with accordionist Gwen Cresens, we will explore the various influences that have made Piazzolla such a unique figure. In doing so, we will travel through the music of Bach, Bartok to the jazz that he discovered in his youth in New York.

And thus we also make the connection with one of our own greatest musicians Toots Thielemans - who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2022. Especially for this New Year's concert, Gwen pays homage to our Belgian great master.

During the concert, Gwen and David will share fun anecdotes about the music, the composers and their experiences on stage. Accessible, engaging, funny, to welcome 2023 in a very relaxed way.
