"Astor Piazzolla, le Père du Nouveau Tango" au Musée de l'Accordéon de Castelfidardo - Italie

Book cover
Paolo PicchioPaolo Picchio (photo de gauche) et le livre Astor Piazzolla, Le père de Nuevo Tango (Edizioni Curci - photo ci-dessus) seront les principaux participants le dimanche 15 mai 2022 à 18h30 au Musée de l'accordéon Castelfidardo à Ancône, Italie.

Musicologue, accordéoniste et compositeur, Picchio présentera le volume dans lequel il retrace les événements biographiques et artistiques du brillant compositeur et bandonéoniste argentin (Mar del Plata, 11 mars 1921 - Buenos Aires, 4 juillet 1992), de ses débuts à la popularité mondiale. Préface de Laura Escalada Piazzolla et Daniel Villaflor Piazzolla.

L'événement sera enrichi par les interventions musicales de Cristiano Lui (bandonéon), Annalisa Biancofiore (voix) et Giorgio Fiori (violoncelle). “Une occasion incontournable de revivre l'histoire et la musique d'Astor Piazzolla dans le prestigieux musée qui conserve ses partitions originales et le bandonéon ayant appartenu à l'artiste. A cette occasion, cet instrument de musique précieux et iconique sera repositionné dans la vitrine.

Piazzolla avec ses mélanges de tango, de jazz et de classique a donné vie au soi-disant Nuevo Tango : il s'est attiré de vives critiques de la part des puristes argentins - qui en sont venus à l'appeler "le tueur du tango" - mais en vérité il a réformé, régénéré et sublimé. Suivant une chronologie précise et détaillée, le livre propose d'écouter les œuvres les plus significatives de chaque phase de sa carrière : les contaminations entre les genres, les collaborations avec les protagonistes du jazz, les productions cinématographiques, la musique de concert, la chanson, la poésie et la danse. La discussion est accompagnée d'une discographie raisonnée et complète, dans laquelle Piazzolla figure à la fois comme compositeur et comme interprète.

Paolo Picchio a donné des conférences dans le monde entier sur l'accordéon et son répertoire, et publie régulièrement des essais et des articles dans des magazines et des sites Web spécialisés.
