Letters From Argentina
In this musical feast, Schifrin combines tango and Argentinean Folk music with Classical music to create a fresh, new sound reminiscent of his homeland, Argentina. Schifrin on piano, is accompanied by David Shifrin on clarinet, Cho-Liang Lin on violin, Nestor Marconi on bandoneon, Pable Aslan on double bass and Satoshi Takeshi on percussion. Together, these highly distinguished soloists guide the listeners through the process of interpreting and performing Schifrin's new work that promises to combine the earthy energy of the Argentinean Tango with the great tradition of chamber music. The piece, and concert, is a salute to David Shifrin - former Artistic Director of Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center, a clarinestist of unmatched renown, and a distant cousin of Schifrin's.
