Centango. Piazzolla 1921-2021
by Adolfo Zagari
"Centango" is a piece for accordion and piano composed in 2021 that wants to be a tribute to the great musician (bandoneonist) and Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla (inventor of the "Nuevo Tango") on the centenary of birth (1921-2021). The influence of Argentine tango is evident in the song: the fast rhythm of tango alternates with slow times, with contaminations of modern music, contemporary and jazz improvisations, making tango and jazz passionately merge together in a single "love".
Adolfo Zagari, from Calabria, began the study of the accordion with the M. A. Currao. In Messina, where he graduated in Biological Sciences, he studied with Ms S. Crisafulli, perfecting in Florence and Talla with Ms S. Di Gesualdo.
Graduated in accordion (Florence), Jazz (Reggio Calabria) and II level (Vibo Valentia) with top marks and Praise, since 2007 (year of opening of the chair) is Professor of Accordion at the Conservatory "F. Cilea" in Reggio Calabria.
