Faculty Friday

A Truly Grand Tango
Check Out The Heifetz Videos of the Week
Composer Antonio Bazzini

Hailed by Publisher’s Weekly  as “Painstakingly researched, with revealing quotes from Piazzolla’s family, friends, teachers and colleagues, the book provides an intimate look at the musician’s life,” the definitive biography of Astor Piazzolla borrows its title from this piece: “Le Grand Tango.” 

Our #FacultyFriday series of videos is the time we set aside once a week to feature our world-renowned Heifetz Institute string and piano faculty.  This Friday, Heifetz Institute cello teacher Antonio Lysy, professor of cello at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of music, and winner of a Latin Grammy award for his CD Antonio Lysy at the Broad – Music From Argentina joins with pianist Anton Smirnoff to offer a riveting performance of Astor Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango  in concert at Mary Baldwin University’s Francis Auditorium, summertime home of the Heifetz International Music Institute.  

We’re delighted that Mr. Lysy will be among our distinguished Cello faculty returning for #Heifetz2021.  To see the roster of faculty and application information, click here!
