After the success of their Los Tangeros tour, Pablo Ziegler and Christopher O’Riley come together again for Two to Tango, an adventurous program featuring virtuosic two-piano arrangements of compositions of their own and by Astor Piazzolla. Buenos Aires-born, Latin Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Ziegler is one of the most important figures in Argentine nuevo tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of classic tango and American jazz. O’Riley, the host of NPR’s classical music program From the Top (which will host a taping at the Mondavi Center on March 18), has stretched the piano beyond conventional boundaries with groundbreaking transcriptions of Radiohead, Elliott Smith and Nick Drake, and his sublime interpretations of the classical canon.
