Intoxication

Intoxication

 

Sensual exhilaration brought on by a bottle, an emotion, a passion, a perfume or a pleasure… The SpiriTango Quartet presents an exploration of every facet of this strange euphoria which takes control of the human mind and body, conducted through the dual medium of music and poetry, those cupbearers of dizzying rapture. A voyage which, while not neglecting the Argentina of Borges and Piazzolla, also explores new influences: a hint of undulating salsa, then a nostalgic milonga from Rosario in the company of Luis Caruana, followed by the Brazilian choros of Nazareth and De Abreu with their hip-swaying exuberance… And for the first time a proper place for contemporary French music, with the first quartet transcription of Richard Galliano’s famous Opal Concerto, and first performances of pieces by Alexandre Fontaines and Matthieu Stefanelli. The SpiriTango Quartet invites you to join them in this dance between two worlds, in a spirit inspired by the words of Alfred de Musset: “What does the bottle matter, as long as one has the intoxication?”
