02 Aug AUGUST 6TH, COMO, FURIA-SCHIRRU DUO
On Friday, August 6th, at 5.30 pm, at Villa Carlotto, Sala dei marmi in Tremezzina (Como), the Furia-Schirru Duo will perform as part of the Lake Como Festival 2021.
Past, present and future condensed into a unique and unusual journey through the history of Tango. Fusion and contamination, tradition and innovation, but also balance, technique,
imagination and improvisation. The result is an interesting synthesis between the sound world of Jazz and Tango Nuevo. A mélange of strength and passion, energy and pathos, in which classic suggestions are recognized, in the rigor of the composition inspired by the balance of form and the counterpoint of the great masters of the past, but always focusing on contemporary avant-gardes.
An innovative show, in which the dimensions of time and space fold up to meet, guiding the listener in an exciting and seductive journey from the traditional Tango, to the jazz and avant-garde influences of Astor Piazzolla and to Fabio Furia’s original compositions. An artistic experience in which the tango reaches its maximum evolution, transformed and revolutionized. Not just music, therefore, but Art in its broadest and most modern sense. Indeed, Contemporary Tango proposes an eclectic and multi-faceted itinerary in which the poetic power of music blends with the technical virtuosity of the artists. A production result of a real path of research and experimentation, based on the comparison and interaction between genres and styles. Sounds become poetry in a musical itinerary in which the refined compositional technique is combined with the profound melodic sensibility and the passionate improvisation, in the executive virtuosity of an all-Italian formation. A deeply jazz and contamination repertoire that fits into an intimately evocative and emotional dimension.
