Tangoheart to perform at Rose Theater

PORT TOWNSEND — Tangoheart will return to the Rose Theater at 1 p.m. Sunday.

The group will “bring the power, beauty, and passion of the Argentine tango to the Port Townsend community,” organizers said.

Tickets are $22. They can be purchased online at www.rosetheatre.com.

This special concert is dedicated to the music of Astor Piazzolla and two of his greatest contemporaries, Osvaldo Pugliese and Anibal “Pichuco” Troilo, Piazzolla’s first boss.

The Osvaldo Pugliese Orchestra is considered the equivalent of the U.S. Duke Ellington Orchestra while Anibal Troilo is often compared to Benny Goodman.

Tangoheart, which performed at the Rose in 2017, was founded in 1999 as an authentic classic “orquesta typica” which includes piano, contrabajo, string section, and the bandoneon, the Argentine instrument with the emblematic tango sound.

Through the years Tangoheart has performed in every major theater in the Northwest, organizers said.

It is led by Port Townsend’s bandoneonista Bertram Levy, who has spent the last three decades immersed in the Argentine tango.

The group’s bass lines belong to jazz arranger, performer and original Tangoheart member Andy Carr on piano and to Todd Gowers of Seattle.

The string section includes world music specialist Ruthie Dornfeld on first violin and long-time Seattle Symphony assistant principal violist Dorothy Shapiro on second.
