Pedro López & Panaretos Kyriatzidis: History of the Tango

pedro lopez

Astor Piazzolla’s Histoire du tango is essential listening for anyone interested in Latin classical, now recognised as one of the most original and iterated pieces in the Latin canon. It evokes four periods of tango’s colourful history in as many movements – from the argentine tango of the 19th-century bordello in which it was forged, to the tango of today. The work was originally conceived for two of the artform’s root instruments: flute and guitar, but the widespread popularity of the piece has since led to adaptations by all manner of instruments. Multi-award-winning Spanish flautist, Pedro López, showcases the piece in a popular version with piano. López has performed worldwide, including appearances at Het Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Queen Elizabeth Hall (London), Royal Opera House (London), Palau de la Musica Catalana (Barcelona) and Barbican (London) among others. He is accompanied on the piano by rising star Panaretos Kyriatzidis, recent winner of the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform and the Gerald Moore Award.
