composer Miguel del Aguila

Los Angeles based composer Miguel del Aguila has a long relationship with Chautauqua, Buffalo, and JoAnn Falletta, who asked Miguel to write a concerto for BPO Principal Cellist Roman Mekinulov with a tango flavor.  Miguel told WNED's Peter Hall that the cello is THE sound of the tango, but that, while many tangos are sad, he added some humor to his lyrical piece.  It's a world premiere of "Concierto en Tango," Saturday 5/10 at 8pm and Sunday 5/11 at 2:30pm at Kleinhans Music Hall.
