    The 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker

Dance forms are also used in the concert hall – and with a seated audience – to keep the elemental connection between music and physical movement in mind. This unusual programme shows on the one hand how Astor Piazzolla transformed the Argentine tango into an autonomous art form – and on the other hand how well composers such as Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Jean Françaix integrated elements of light music into classically conceived works of chamber music.
