AstorArte is a project by Krzysztof Meisinger devoted to the oeuvre of Astor Piazzolla. Beginning with the year 2018, the main objective of this endeavour is to present the music of the Argentinian virtuoso in an authentic, genuine and unpretentious manner. The forerunner to this particular project (known simply as ASTOR) which has been carried out jointly with Sinfonia Varsovia continues to garner international renown among both critics and music lovers. The unique programme of AstorArte, by contrast, is based on an extraordinary material purposefully arranged for guitar and string quintet. The artists forming the sextet have been widely acclaimed as eminent soloists. Piazzolla’s compositions are for them a manifestation of deep emotions emanating from the incredible energy which lies at the heart of his music. This is going to be an extraordinary evening which will resound with the expressive music played by musicians united by their love of Astor Piazzolla’s work.
