DESCRIPTION:

The legendary Argentinian bandoneonist Rodolfo Mederos joins Director Olivier Ochanine and the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra for their last concert of the 32nd Classics Season It will be a night to remember as the programme includes an international mix of Ravel's 'Alborada del Gracioso', Respighi's 'Pines of Rome', and the segment featuring Mederos on various tangos and milongas from South America, with accompaniment of the PPO. 

 

ABOUT THE GUEST ARTIST:

Regarded as a musical force to reckon with and an icon in the world of tango music, Rodolfo Mederos has carved out an illustrious career as a performer, composer, teacher and writer of music for the bandoneon and tango.  His instrument--the bandoneon---is a type of concertina (a free-reed musical instrument similar to the accordion and the harmonica) particularly popular in Argentina, Uruguay, and Lithuania.

 

Mederos is a two-time Latin Grammy nominee.  In 2000, he was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in the category of Best Tango Album for Eterno Buenos Aires (1999), which featured him performing with a quintet comprised also of pianist Hernán Posetti, violinist Damián Bolotín, guitarist Armando de la Vega, and double bassist Sergio Rivas. His successive two albums Las Veredas de Saturno (2000) won a Gardel Award in 2001 while Tangos (2000), a collaborative album with Nicolás "Colacho" Brizuela, earned a Latin Grammy Award nomination in 2001. Mederos commenced the Comunidad-Intimidad-Soledad trilogy -- Comunidad (2006), Intimidad (2007), and Soledad (2007) -- the first entry in which earned him a Latin Grammy Award nomination for Best Tango Album in 2007.

 

Aside from being a performer, Rodolfo Mederos is also a biologist, filmmaker, carpenter, teacher and collector.
