Argentine Music Comes To Stowe

Arts / Aug. 10, 2017 11:34am EDT

What the producers call “a dazzling variety of instrumental and vocal combinations” will present a night of passionate Argentine music and dance on Saturday, Aug. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe.

The music for the unusual program will include the complete “Four Seasons in Buenos Aires” by Ástor Piazzolla, steamy Argentine songs, excerpts from the “Gypsy Songbook” by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco, as well as classic and novel dances.

Performers will include Counterpoint, Vermont’s only professional vocal ensemble, and Orange County musicians Jeremiah and Annemieke McClain, performing as the Cassotto Duo,

From Burlington will come the “Ocho Cuerdas” duo of soprano Sarah Cullins and guitarist Daniel Gaviria.

The duo recently moved to the Green Mountains from the Andes Mountains of Bogota, Colombia, where both Sarah and Daniel had busy careers as soloists and chamber musicians. They are named for the eight “strings” that make up their two instruments and combine classical training and experience with their love of traditional Latin American and Spanish rhythms and folklore, including the intense passion of Flamenco music.
