Details

This diverting program of music inspired by and written for cafés is anything but background music – lively, sophisticated, and fun, the best café music will make you want to get up and dance. The Dorian Wind Quintet (“extraordinary,” New York Times) performs tangos by Piazzolla and Lalo Schifrin’s jazzy La Nouvelle Orleans; and Abigail Fischer sings café songs throughout the program.

Featured Selections:
PIAZZOLLA Histoire du Tango
PAQUITO D’RIVERA Aires Tropicales
LALO SCHIFRIN La Nouvelle Orleans
FRANCAIX L’heure du berger
ARTURO MARQUEZ Danza del Mediodia
Selected French, German, and American café songs by Poulenc, Piazzolla, Gershwin, Kurt Weill, and in the style of Edit Piaf
