Langley Community Music School presents The Bergmann Piano Duo and Paolo Bortolussi, flute, to the Rose Gellert Hall on Sunday, Jan. 12 for L’histore du Tango, a Latin-inspired program that’s sure to entertain.
Coffee and commentary are hosted before the concert with the school’s artistic director of concerts Elizabeth Bergmann at 3 p.m., followed by the performance at 4 p.m.
“What a wonderful way to keep warm this January by listening to some fiery tango and tango-inspired music,” said Bergmann.
“This concert is dedicated to the tango inspired music of of Astor Piazzolla and the main piece on the program features his flute and piano work, L’histoire du Tango. It’s exemplary of the composer’s knack for combining passion and energy with the sensual and more evocative elements of the tango.”
Paolo Bortolussi will demonstrate his flare for tango on the flute with a couple of solo Tango etudes by the Argentinian composer. He will also partner with Marcel Bergmann on piano to perform the famous l’histoire du Tango.
Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann will perform Michaelangelo 70 arranged for two pianos by Piazzolla’s long time colleague and pianist of his ensemble, Pablo Ziegler, as well as the well-known Libertango and Oblivion arranged by Marcel. The duo will also include an original work by Marcel inspired by Piazzolla, Ben Venuto.
Bergmann Piano Duo Tickets are available at the box office and by calling 604-534-2848. Admission is $15 adults, $13 seniors, and $10 students. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
