Quejas de Bandoneon Live
The sextet Quejas de Bandoneón (Cristina Bertoli flute-Marco Fabbri bandoneon-Daniel Pacitti bandoneon-Alessandro Bonetti violin-Marco Forti double-bass-Stefano Giavazzi piano.) was founded in 1997 by the flute player Cristina Bertoli. Thanks to the passionate work of the bandoneon player Marco Fabbri, who devoted himself to transcriptions from old recordings dating back to the golden age of tango, the group disposes today upon a large repertory, including pieces of "classical" authors like Juan de Dios Filiberto, Anibal Troilo, Agustin Bardi, Horacio Salgàn, Osvaldo Pugliese, up to Astor Piazzolla and his Tango Nuevo. After the debut, occurred during the final evening of the International Competition Astor Piazzolla in Castelfidardo (1997), the sextet made soon rich musical experiences through co-operations with prestigious dancers like, among others, Javier Rodriguez and Geraldine Rojas (performers of the movie "Assassination Tango" by R. Duvall), Adrian Aragon and Erica Boaglio (dancers in the show "Forever tango" by Miguel Angel Zotto), as well as with Luciano Padovani's "Compagnia Naturalis Labor".
