Friday 23 May 2014
Ouverture des portes : 20:00
Price : Free entrance
Location : Petit Théâtre Mercelis Plan
Initially, but not exclusively, devoted to tango Nuevo, Soledad have always had their own sound, their own style and their own ambience; whichever extraordinary composers they work with (and they are always extraordinary), when Soledad play music, they make it reverberate, resonating “Soledad”. (M.D.M, La Libre)
SOLEDAD was formed in 1995 when five young musicians with a solid classical background came together. A group united in harmony and through a love of Astor Piazzolla’s work, they primarily specialise in interpreting tango nuevo. The group is primarily based around the accordion/bandonéon, violin, piano, guitar and double bass.
The ensemble's originality and personality have captured the interest of many contemporary composers, including Frédéric Devreese, Alberto Iglesias, Daniel Capelletti and Richard Galliano to name but a few, and the group’s musicians have composed their own pieces inspired by a wide range of influences. With their current approach, SOLEDAD follow in the footsteps of Piazzolla whilst paving the way to new musical horizons.
The group’s interpretation has very quickly earned plaudits from the auditoria. Winners of various chamber music competitions both at home in Belgium and abroad, SOLEDAD are now to be seen performing at some of the most prestigious international venues and festivals.
