About the Artist

Making their Princeton debut, Grammy-award winning violin phenomenon Augustin Hadelich and Spanish guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas bring highlights from their popular album, Histoire du Tango, to Princeton University Concerts.

With audience seated around them directly on the stage, the artists will trace the history of Argentina's national dance in Astor Piazzolla's title track and stir up folk, gypsy and flamenco dances. Transforming the stage into an Argentine nightclub with the help of light-designer Kate Ashton, the duo will present two performances, each an hour long. Seating is very limited. Audience will have a chance to interact with the artists following the performance.
