Piazzolla in Paris is a brand new program by bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof and his quartet and violinist Lisa Jacobs with her string ensemble for the 2024/2025 concert season.

With the program Piazzolla in Paris, Carel and Lisa – after a very successful collaboration last summer in Germany – realize their wish to set up a concert tour together with music by Astor Piazzolla and the Boulanger sisters. They thus underline Piazzolla’s belief that the tango deserves a place in the classical music canon.

‘It is incredible how well Lisa and her ensemble manage the tango timing. It is a pleasure to keep the spirit of tango alive with them.’

–Carel Kraayenhof

‘Piazzolla‘s music combines very well with the compositions of his teacher Nadia Boulanger, her sister Lili, and Igor Stravinsky. You just feel how much Piazzolla was influenced by his time in Paris. There he discovered his real identity as a composer. And it is such a pleasure to be able to perform this program with Carel and his quartet, he is such an authority in the field of tango.’

–Lisa Jacobs
