For 33 years, Carl Algermissen and Ethan Lazarus have been performing together, bringing their unique sound to audiences, and introducing the music of Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla to two instruments he rarely composed for: piano and cello.

Piazzolla’s musical style, a ‘fusion’ of the tango tradition with classical and jazz elements, inspired Mr. Algermissen and Mr. Lazarus to take this phenomenal music and make it their own.  The result of these effort led to their debut professional recording, Evenings with Astor, a compilation of 12 original arrangements.

A second CD of new original arrangements is in the works, and will include works such as:  Libertango, Michelangelo 70, Milonga Sin Palabras, Otoño Porteño, Street Tango and Escualo.

Enjoy your visit to, and learn to love the music of Astor Piazzolla.
