LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 5, 2014) — Tango, the popular music and dance genre, and art form, will be the focus of several University of Kentucky School of Music events this semester. This month, Argentinian musician Julian Hasse will play the bandoneón and speak on the instrument's role within tango ensembles 2 p.m. Thursday, March 6, and 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 7. Both free public events will be in the Niles Gallery, located in the Lucille C. Little Fine Arts Library and Learning Center.

 

Hasse's program, "The Bandoneón: Soul of the Tango Orquesta," will elaborate on styles, techniques and history of this instrument with tango. Before developing a career in Argentina as a bandoneón and guitar player, arranger and orchestra conductor, Hasse attended the Musicians Institute of Technology in Los Angeles and a Berklee summer program. He is the founder of Orquesta de la Academia Nacional del Tango in Buenos Aires and Tangoscores.com, the largest online store for tango musicians. Hasse currently serves as the Tango Orchestra conductor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and performs with the Julian Hasse Quartet.

 

The Hasse events are presented in coordination with the College of Fine Arts courses MUS 390 and TA 350, "Tango in Argentina and the World: Music, Dance, and Culture," instructed by Associate Professor of Musicology Diana Hallman. The course explores the music, poetry and dance of tango and its history in Argentina, from 19th century beginnings through its Golden Age (1935-55), to contemporary trends of "nuevo tango" and professional tango shows.

 

“The Bandoneón: Soul of the Tango Orquesta" is sponsored by the School of Music and Department of Hispanic Studies
