Ortiz’s Bandoneon Concerto Premieres February
January 30, 2015

JP Jofre, bandoneon.

Composer Pablo Ortiz will have his Bandoneon Concerto premiered by the Santa Rosa Symphony, with J.P. Jofre, for whom the work was written, on February 7th at the Weill Concert Hall at the Green Music Center.

I grew up listening to tango music, as well as the Western classical canon and popular genres, such as rock, jazz and blues. All of these influences are present in my work. In writing the concerto, I was trying to develop a more abstract contemporary language… but where the tango influences would not be too obvious. The piece has the normal three movements of the concerto genre.
