Polly Ferman - Daniel Binelli
BINELLI - FERMAN DUO
Daniel Binelli, music director, bandoneonist, composer and arrangement
Polly Ferman, music director and pianist
World-class musicians Daniel Binelli and Polly Ferman have united their talents to develop and further the appreciation of the tango, milonga, Candombe, and other Latin American musical forms in the rarely heard partnership of the bandoneón and piano. Their performances reflect the elegance and the subtlety of the traditional tango, the sauciness of the milonga, the romance of the waltz, and the temperament and power of the contemporary tango.
With Binelli and Ferman's teamwork, one missed none of the nostalgia, lyrical passion and throbbing dance rhythms that mark Piazzola's works.
