January 19, 2010 - Tuesday Pactica at Bamboo Grove

(Beginning this week, we will revisit all of the major orchestras one by one, exploring their music in a little more detail...)

*This week's featured orchestra is Carlos Di Sarli
From 9-10pm we revisit one of our most favorite tango orchestras, feeling the passion and romance of Di Sarli's rolling rhythms and expansive melodies:
  • comparing/contrasting the vocalists Roberto Rufino & Alberto Podestá
  • looking at Di Sarli's instrumental (non-vocal) pieces to see how the energetic quality of his music changed through the 1940s
  • searching for for Di Sarli's signature sound
  • plus a little history...
If you'd like to read about Di Sarli, see his Bio on todotango.com
