Homage to Astor Piazzolla will be performed by the Novi Sad Tango Quintet within the performing arts week of the Kaleidoscope of Culture, in the Svilara Cultural Station on 13 September at 8 p.m.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. Thus, the Novi Sad Tango Quintet, under the leadership of the Novi Sad accordionist Dragana Kuzmanović, was formed. Members of the ensemble are extraordinary Novi Sad artists with considerable national and international experience in the field of classical, jazz and pop music: Vladimir Ćuković (violone), Vladimir Jakovljević (guitar), Fedor Ruškuc (double bass), David Klem (piano) and Dragana Kuzmanović (accordion).
At this year’s Kaleidoscope of Culture, within the performing arts week, audience will enjoy their interpretation of the most beautiful Piazzolla’s works that have been written for his quintet and that are not popular on the local music scene.
The fourth Kaleidoscope of Culture will be held from 2 September until 8 October 2021. During five weeks, this yearlong project of culture of togetherness that connects artists, cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations, citizens and visitors through various processes, will present five types of art. At the end of summer, the Kaleidoscope of Culture will present spaces and programmes throughout the city, promoting a unique image of the diversity of Novi Sad.
