Quinteto Respiro seeks through its repertoire to provide the public with programs presenting Tango as a resolutely concerted musical form in perpetual evolution, while strictly respecting the codes and conventions that preside over the purest tradition of this music.
A daring idea, a crazy bet, and decisive meetings. This is how the Quinteto Respiro symphonic project was born. After several years spent building their own ensemble, developing their aesthetic, and asserting the sound that makes their identity, the five musicians imagine introduce the public to their musical universe in a more developed instrumental configuration.
The result of an entire year of work in close collaboration with the Argentinian pianist and composer Gustavo Beytelmann, this symphonic program was built in the image of what the quintet offers in its own repertoire. Their purpose is clear : show the public the extreme richness of this music, and dispel the many prejudices that surround Tango, long considered a musical sub-genre, intended above all to make people dance.
Combining arrangements of essential traditional themes, such as La Cumparsita, little-known works by Astor Piazzolla, and compositions by Gustavo Beytelmann, the program encompasses several eras, styles of writing, and different aesthetics, which today constitute the repertoire of Tango. instrumental.
The listener will therefore find himself drawn into a real journey through the musical evolution of Tango, between pure tradition and great modernity.
The concert is presented in the idea of a large formation of musicians with variable geometry, thus allowing the listeners to benefit in the space of a concert of a very wide range of sounds and to discover as well all the facets of the orchestra than those of the quintet.
