Virtuoso pianist, arranger and composer Pablo Estigarribia uses the auspicious date of May 25 (Argentine First Government) to lecture about what to expect when you listen to a tango piece: structure, orchestration, rhythmic patterns and phrasing. No music knowledge required.
Pablo Estigarribia is a world renown virtuoso Argentine tango pianist, arranger and composer that began his musical journey in Classical Music, witch had its culmination when he was awarded with the 1st Prize of the "Bienal Juvenil" National Competition (sponsored by Shell, in 2005). After a brief detour through jazz he discovered Tango in 2005, when he was awarded with the Orquesta Escuela de Tango scholarship for joining the ensemble under the directorship of Maestro Emilio Balcarce, with whom he had his first European tour. He continued the path as a Tango performer through Germany, France, Belgium, Japan, Russia, Finland, Canada, USA and Cuba, in over 1000 concerts, with elite Argentine tango orchestras as follows, Victor Lavallen Orchestra, Tango Pasión, Lisandro Adrover Quintet and as a solo artist.
