Stowe Tango Music Festival

Bandoneon Intensive Workshop

August 6 – August 11, 2024
5–day workshop

The Stowe Tango Music Festival's Bandoneon Intensive Workshop is open for all levels of bandoneon students. Led by world–renowned bandoneon player Hector Del Curto, the one–week program consists of daily technique classes, workshops, bandoneon orchestra, private lesson and performance opportunities.

Technique classes focus on instrument management, articulations, phrasing and the techniques that will narrow the gap between musical intention and execution. The workshops will help students acquire knowledge and experience in stylistic and interpretative skills. In addition, students will have the opportunity to apply their skills through master classes and performance.

Attendance to the Bandoneon Intensive Workshop is required for bandoneon players who are invited to the Tango Academy as the workshop will provide the necessary preparation for rehearsing and performing in the Stowe Tango Music Festival Orchestra (orquesta tipica).

For advanced bandoneon players who are interested in participating in the Tango Academy, an audio recording must be submitted.
