Contrabassist Ariel Eberstein

Ariel Eberstein, contrabassist en leader van het Tangoquartet Sonico komt spreken over de toekomst in de Tango en de relatie Tango/Jazz.

Modern tango is the synthesis of Rovira’s and Piazzolla’s musical and cultural backgrounds, The culmination of the tango legacy of Buenos Aires, The influence of the Jazz idioms of New-York and European classical music avante-garde. The result is an ever developing genre.

Piazzolla himself once claimed he performed “plastic surgery “ on tango by developing and experimenting with it. These fresh ideas in modern tango led to popularization of the genre, not only in Argentina but also internationally. These changes didn’t impoverish tango, on the contrary, they insured that it will stand the test of time.
