Three-time Grammy nominated Uruguayan-born American composer, Miguel del Aguila, shares insight into his most recent lauded composition, Concerto de Tango. Commissioned by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the piece was inspired by the composer’s fond memories of the music and dancing of his childhood. Del Aguila was a child prodigy, graduating from the main music conservatory in Montevideo at age 14. Although trained in the classical romantic tradition, he composes in a very modern idiom. Del Aguila’s catalog contains over one hundred compositions, including opera, orchestra, choral, solo, and chamber works, as well as music for theater and television. His music is published by Peermusic Classical.

Produced by Donna Granata
