Experience the Passion of Tango: Brass & Percussion Septet Presents 'Tango the Night' Concert

Written by  May 19, 2023

The Brass & Percussion septet of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra is preparing an interesting concert titled "Tango the Night" on Saturday, May 20th. The concert will take place in the atrium of the Rector's Palace, starting at 9 p.m.

This program, arranged by Damir Butigan, is based on tango music that has its roots in Argentina. Although the program primarily focuses on the music of Astor Piazzolla, there are also works that are not necessarily in the tango style but belong to the Argentine cultural heritage, such as "Pampeana" by Alberto Ginastera. Piazzolla's compositions will be juxtaposed with some Croatian tangos that were created in the first half and middle of the 20th century, following the contemporary trends of that time and being known as popular hits. For example, we will listen to "Samo jednom se ljubi" by Ivo Robić. This evening will also have a special guest, cellist Vid Veljak!

The B&P Septet consists of the following musicians:

Karmen Pervitić (glockenspiel and xylophone)
Džemal Cakić (trumpet and flugelhorn)
Toni Kursar (French horn)
Martin Hrćan (French horn)
Damir Butigan (euphonium)
Ivan Kušelj (trumpet and flugelhorn)
Alan Polzer (drums and percussion)

It promises to be a wonderful evening filled with the enchanting sounds of tango performed by this talented septet in the captivating setting of the Rector's Palace.
