“They called Astor Piazzolla and me crazy, now they call us masters”
Rovira’s music is eclectic and Sonico’s broad public is aware of that. We propose to explore the many different periods of Eduardo Rovira’s musical heritage, ranging from his electric jazz-tango to his acoustic chamber music-inspired tangos. But most of all Sonico’s goal is to present the richness of Rovira’s music, his importance as creator of the modern tango and as well as his musical relation with his world famous “nemesis,” Astor Piazzolla.
In light of Rovira’s varied instrumentation, Sonico has created three thematic programs including:
1.Jazz & Tango : two styles, one language (trio)
Miles Davis in Buenos Aires, Astor Piazzolla in New York. Why not?
2.Chamber music meets tango (quartet)
Bach, Mozart and Beethoven playing tango in Rovira’s mind.
3.Rovira vs piazzolla: a clash of opposites (quintet)
Eduardo Rovira was in the shadow of Astor Piazzolla for much of his career,
but who was the real creator of tango nuevo?
