Info for Pasión Tango El Grande

Friedrich Kleinhapl was immediately impressed by Astor Piazzolla's Le Grand Tango, his only original composition for cello and piano. The idea of combining South American temperament with European depth and a classical conception of sound ultimately resulted in the album program Pasion Tango for cello and piano (ARS38161). The next step was a logical continuation: tangos again with cello, but this time with a classical orchestra, in order to explore the tonal and emotional potential even more deeply - the result is a Gran Pasion Tango!

Friedrich Kleinhapl and his wife Heidrun Maya Hagn are continuously developing arts projects. Together with Andreas Woyke they founded „Get a Hearing – association of artists supporting children with hearing loss“ in 2015.

Everything in Friedrich Kleinhapls’ performance is different, modern: a special chair, the cello is significantly flat-angled, the bow-bow-arm almost stretched. The meticulous search after his own way is paying back: …”
