Paul Taylor Dance Company
Piazzolla Caldera (1997) (World Premiere of live collaboration with Pablo Ziegler’s New Tango Ensemble)
Piazzolla Caldera, Taylor’s poetic masterwork exploring tango’s sultry, raging essence, springs back to life thanks to a unique treatment with live music provided by Argentine pianist and composer Pablo Ziegler. For the company’s Diamond 60th Anniversary, several other seminal works including the just-revived Schoenberg-scored Fibers (1961) and 1962’s classical masterpiece Aureole will celebrate this titan of modern dance.
Pablo Ziegler’s New Tango Ensemble
Ziegler toured the world with tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla’s quintet for over a decade before realizing his own globally inflected tango visions. Ziegler’s New Tango Ensemble moves the nuevo tango tradition into fertile fresh territory in their opening set.
