Israel Chamber Orchestra Cyclical Tango Night

Israeli Chamber Tango Night with the Israel Chamber Orchestra

By elibikoret

The "Circular Tango Night" was a very special concert that probably suited the audience's taste, since the auditorium in the Tel Aviv Museum was packed. Of all the 9 composers we heard only two of them were known to me.

Gisele Ben-Dor led this special concert, with Dutch soloist Carl Kreinhoff on bandoneon.
In addition, there were performances from "Project 1721", established in 2012 by the sisters T'lalit Cersky and Nufar Fay. This composition creates new musical combinations of classical works with contemporary music, tango and improvisation in the 21st century artistic spirit.

The excellent concert was most enjoyable, even as the music performed was written by unknown composers, as the music joyfully engaged the ear with tango rhythms and its many variations.

The conductor, Gisele Ben-Dor, of Uruguayan origin, is a famous international conductor. One of her goals is to promote the music of Latin American composers around the world, which she did successfully in this concert.The newest CD she released with Placido Domingo was dedicated to Alberto Ginastera -best known Argentine composer- on the occasion of his 100th birthday.

I have no doubt that a large part of the audience had never heard these Latin American composers before. The concert was full of interesting, beautiful music, as the recognition of worth hearing and enjoying composers who are not often performed was fully deserved.
