Nuestro Piazzolla

Martin Alvarado and Matti Laukkanen


Exploring rare and lesser performed music by Astor Piazzolla in a two man show featuring world renowned Argentine troubadour Martin Alvarado and acclaimed Finnish jazz inspired pianist Matti Laukkanen. The show to showcase a new album of the same name.

Described as the best voice in Buenos Aires, Martin Alvarado infuses a carefully chosen repertoire, with warmth, colour, nuance and sensitivity.

A charismatic showman on the platform, his unforgettable performances have an obvious wow factor, whether singing with a full symphony orchestra, a jazz big band or with just his tenor voice and a guitar in front of a handful of people.

“The world needs to experience this extreme form of aural pleasure… totally mesmerising, a tango epiphany.”
Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio

“Completely beguiling tenor”
Mary Ann Kennedy,  BBC Radio 3 

“One of the most renowned voices in tango in the world today” 
La Radio 2×4, Buenos Aires

It is these qualities that have transcended language barriers and driven an illustrious two-decade globe-trotting touring career, 11 album releases and awards. In recognition of his significance as a cultural ambassador for Argentina, the National Academy of Tango officially declared him as a Maestro in 2019.

Over the past 20 years he has performed at many major concert halls, festivals and clubs including The Kremlin Palace Concert Hall, the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival, The Helsinki Music Centre, the Buenos Aires Tango Festival, philharmonic halls across Russia, the Teatro Solis in Montevideo and Festival Internacional de Tango in Medellin, Colombia and the Auditorio de Zaragoza.
