Fifteen Minutes of Fame – 15 Tangos for Juan María Solare – Premiere:  Something close to tango

July 17, 2012, 12:30pm
University of Bremen Theater
Bremen, Germany

I wrote this short tango for Solare’s concert, the 15 minutes of fame a brainchild of Robert Voisey and Vox Novus, that features a collection of 15 one-minute acoustic works composed specifically for a specific performer or ensemble. These concerts promote a great variety of contemporary music to audiences who want to hear what living composers are writing now.
