THE ARTISTS

Pablo Ziegler, piano
Hector Del Curto, bandoneon
Claudio Ragazzi, guitar

For decades, Buenos Aires-born, GRAMMY-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Ziegler has been one of the most important figures in Argentine New Tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of traditional tango, American jazz, and European art music. After performing in tango grand-maestro Astor Piazzolla’s legendary quintet for over a decade, and appearing on iconic Piazzolla recordings including Tango: Zero Hour, La Camorra and Central Park Concert, Ziegler has led his own groups for over 25 years, refining and reimagining the bounds of the modern tango tradition.

Recent seasons have seen Ziegler performing at major venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Muziekgebouw, Verbier Festival, Ravinia Festival SFJAZZ, Montreal Jazz Festival, the Ottawa International Jazz Fest, Tokyo Jazz Festival, La Jolla SummerFest, Laguna Beach Music Festival, Blue Note, Birdland and many others. Ziegler also gives Masterclasses at music academy such as Mozarteum, Berklee School of Music, New England Conservatory, Eastman School of Music. 

Ziegler’s most recent release, 2017’s Jazz Tango won the 60th GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Jazz Album with his trio, Hector Del Curto and Claudio Ragazzi. 2013’s the LATIN GRAMMY-nominated Amsterdam Meets New Tango, sees his quartet paired with the Netherlands’ Metropole Orkest, playing his most famous compositions re-arranged for jazz orchestra. 2016 and 2013 also saw the release of Ziegler’s protege and saxophonist Julio Botti’s both LATIN GRAMMY-nominated Sax to Tango and Tango Nostalgias with Ziegler, Piazzolla and Cobian’s composition. In 2011, Ziegler’s work as music director, arranger and pianist for bass-baritone opera star Erwin Schrott earned an Echo Klassik Award for the album Rojotango. Ziegler’s 2005 release, Bajo Cero, won the LATIN Grammy for Best Tango Album, and in 2008, his album Buenos Aires Report was nominated for the same honor. Ziegler releases his first Solo Piano album by Steinway and Sons in 2018.

Pablo Ziegler is a Steinway Artist and Honorary Citizen of New Orleans.
