PABLO ZIELGER & LARA ST. JOHN

Following the wild success of a concert that drew the largest crowd to Naumburg Orchestral Concerts in the series' 109 years, composer-pianist Pablo Ziegler and violinist Lara St. John are now offering that concert as a special touring program that celebrates tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla's famous Central Park Concert.

The program includes some of the late Argentine composer's most beloved works, as well as exquisite originals by Ziegler. The line-up features the same instrumentation as Piazzolla's iconic New Tango Quintet with which Ziegler played for a decade.


There’s no question that Ziegler takes the tango to levels of sophistication and refinement probably undreamed of by Piazzolla.
