For one night at Grimeborn, The Wild Stage presents a night of music not to dance to, but to inspire, make us dream and take us to faraway places full of longing and passion. Classical music, tango and cabaret. From Kurt Weill to Schoenberg, from Carlos Gardel to Britten, these musical genres have always found ways to meet. To celebrate the music of tango composer, Astor Piazzolla in the year that would have seen his 100th birthday, William Ludwig and Dean Austin, the “cabaret kings” (The Londonist) join forces with two of London’s most exciting classical musicians. The figurehead of new tango – music of the cities, their poetry and chaos, their solitude and excitement – Piazzolla ripped the music from the dance halls of Argentina, placing it in the concert halls of the world.
