Duo Gort-Goldman

Argentinean conductor Cristian Germán Gort and Canadian bandoneon soloist Jonathan Goldman have been collaborating over the last seven years. Their goal: make symphonic tangos come to life by performing the rich sensuous music of Astor Piazzolla and other Argentinean tango masters for solo bandoneon and orchestra. Their collaborations with such orchestras as the Orchestre symphonique de l'Isle have produced acclaimed performances of Piazzolla's Concerto for bandoneon and orchestra and other works. A concert with these two guest musicians transforms a symphony orchestra or string orchestra into into an authentic 'orquesta tipica'.
