This programme will explore his most important works and will also feature other music pieces inspired by him. The Tango ensemble of Stanislav Anguelov (bandoneon), Albert Combrink (piano), Charles Lazar (bass), and Piet de Beer (violin) will be joined by guest Peter Narun on guitar. Following the concert, audience members are welcome to join in for a Milonga (tango dance evening) in the foyer.
