"Astor Piazzolla, el padre del Nuevo Tango" en el Museo del Acordeón de Castelfidardo - Italia

Book cover
Paolo PicchioPaolo Picchio (foto de la izquierda) y el libro Astor Piazzolla, El padre del Nuevo Tango (Edizioni Curci - foto de arriba) serán los principales participantes el domingo 15 de mayo de 2022 a las 18:30 en el Museo del Acordeón de Museum Castelfidardo en Ancona, Italia.

Musicólogo, acordeonista y compositor, Picchio presentará el volumen en el que recorre los acontecimientos biográficos y artísticos del genial compositor y bandoneonista argentino (Mar del Plata, 11 de marzo de 1921 - Buenos Aires, 4 de julio de 1992), desde sus inicios hasta la popularidad mundial. Prólogo de Laura Escalada Piazzolla y Daniel Villaflor Piazzolla.

El evento se verá enriquecido por las intervenciones musicales de Cristiano Lui (bandoneón), Annalisa Biancofiore (voz) y Giorgio Fiori (violonchelo). "Una oportunidad imperdible para revivir la historia y la música de Astor Piazzolla en el prestigioso museo que conserva sus partituras originales y el bandoneón que perteneció al artista. En esta ocasión, este precioso e icónico instrumento musical será reposicionado en la vitrina".

Piazzolla, con sus mezclas de tango, jazz y clásico, dio vida al llamado Nuevo Tango: atrajo duras críticas de los puristas argentinos -que llegaron a llamarle "el asesino del tango"-, pero en realidad lo ha reformado, regenerado y sublimado. Siguiendo una cronología precisa y detallada, el libro propone escuchar las obras más significativas de cada fase de su carrera: las contaminaciones entre géneros, las colaboraciones con los protagonistas del jazz, las producciones cinematográficas, la música de concierto, la canción, la poesía y la danza. La discusión se acompaña de una discografía razonada y completa, en la que Piazzolla figura tanto como compositor como intérprete.

Paolo Picchio ha dado conferencias en todo el mundo sobre el acordeón y su repertorio, y publica regularmente ensayos y artículos en revistas y sitios web especializados.
