Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr.12
A renowned French accordion player Pascal Contet is to perform at the Heydar Aliyev Center accompanied by the Travelling Quartet group on May 5.
The concert will feature some really popular tango tunes in a brand new arrangement and interpretation. This repertoire was presented in France, Brazil and Finland so far.
To come up with this new program, the musicians worked in close junction with France-based Argentine composers with a view to presenting traditional tango tunes in a new arrangement. This resulted in an interesting blend of traditional music and modern style.
A recognized virtuoso, Pascal Contet has been one of France's leading figures in developing new genres of modern music for over 20 years. Author of more than 300 pieces, he happened to work with some true celebrities like Luciano Berio, Bernard Cavanna, Joshua Feinberg, Jean Françaix, Bruno Mantovani and Martin Matalon. He is a winner of a number of international awards.
Members of the Travelling Quartet - Anne Gravoin, Mathilde Sternat, David Braccini, and Vincent Pasquier have already won the sympathy of the audience with their performances.
