Chamber Music Northwest: Letters From Argentina

[CINEMATIC TANGO] Hollywood composer Lalo Schifrin is probably doomed to be remembered for his immortal Mission: Impossible theme, and why not? It still thrills half a century after the Argentine-turned-Angeleno wrote it. Along with his many film and TV scores (Cool Hand Luke, Rush Hour, Enter the Dragon and dozens more), the son of the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra’s concertmaster also studied with French classical composer Olivier Messiaen, played jazz in Paris nightclubs, created Latin America’s first jazz orchestra, recorded 100-plus albums in a five-decade-and-counting career, played piano in Dizzy Gillespie’s quintet and wrote for Gillespie as well as Stan Getz, Count Basie and more. The four-time Grammy winner has also composed “classical” concert works for major orchestras; a rock opera; ballets; theater works; and this nine-movement tango-charged suite inspired by his homeland’s people, places and native musical forms that closes this summer’s festival. As he did in CMNW’s 2007 West Coast premiere of Letters From Argentina, Chamber Music Northwest artistic director David Shifrin will pay homage to his late distant cousin, playing clarinet alongside a stellar ensemble featuring bandoneon accordion, bass, violin, piano and percussion.
