Symphonic Tango

The music of Latin America and Spain is rich of emotions, rhythm, melodies, art...
The Tango has always had a great significance for Andy Miles, many concerts with Tangeros like Fernando Rios Palcio, Roberto the Rosa, Paquito d'Rivera, Pedro Avril, Tito Cavas and many concerts testify. The orchestral suite "Histoire du Tango" by Astor Piazzolla has become a masterpiece of symphonic tango and an integral part of Miles's artistic work.

Andy Miles

Bio

 

 

Andy Miles studied classical clarinet in Bremen and Hanover, finally with Prof. H. Pallushek. In 1991 he was one of the youngest clarinetists in Germany to be a principal clarinetist, in the Hamburger Philharmoniker. Later he came to Cologne as principal clarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra.

Andy Miles is dedicated to chamber music and plays many solo performances as well. He is a sought-after teacher and plays concerts throughout the world.

Time and again he breaks musical boundaries and builds musical bridges. His "wild" past as a Saxophonist in Rockbands, as a Tinwhistlespieler in Folkbands, as a Clarinetist in various Jazzbands and, last not least as the Soloclarinetist of the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg and Soloclarinetist of the WDR Radio Orchestra Cologne, allows him to move effortlessly through different music genres.


 

The press gave him the title: "Marco Polo of the clarinet" - a type of a new generation.

Andy Miles stopped the time for a moment. The audience holds its breath before the soloist was showered with ovations...

The audience was in euphoric emotion, who could resist this super soft Pianissimoculture?
