Astor Piazzolla - Tangazo

The experience: passionate, captivating, lively

Tangazo is a significant work showcasing Piazzolla's unique nuevo tango style, which fuses elements of jazz and classical styles. His use of dissonance, syncopation, and unconventional melodies challenged the boundaries of what was considered traditional tango.

C.P.E. Bach - Concerto for Flute in D minor (feat. Carolyn Brown)

The experience: energetic, lyrical, spirited

Of C.P.E Bach’s six flute concertos, Concerto for Flute in D minor is presented to be the most popular. He wrote all of these pieces during his employment at the court of the court of Frederick the Great, and Bach’s main task was to perform the harpsichord accompaniment for the king’s evening flute playing. This three-movement work is a beautiful and vigorous piece that keeps you drawn in from the start.

Camille Saint-Saëns - Symphony No. 3 in C, "Organ Symphony"

The experience: grand, expressive, euphoric

Saint-Saëns’ "Organ Symphony" is considered one of his most outstanding achievements, showcasing rich melodies, powerful orchestration, and the distinctive sound of the organ. The organ plays a crucial role in the second and fourth movements of the symphony. In the second movement, the organ introduces a serene and expressive melody, creating a sense of awe and spirituality. In the fourth movement, the organ's triumphant and powerful presence contributes to the symphony's grand finale.
