Pablo Ziegler with the Bravo Ensemble and Orchestra Wellington
From Buenos Aires, Ziegler began playing jazz at the age of 14. He studied classical performance and later began arranging classical music for jazz trio, before joining Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango Quintet in 1978. Since Piazzolla’s retirement, Ziegler has continued to play in the Nuevo Tango genre, which incorporates tango, elements of classical music and aspects of jazz improvisation.
In this performance at the Wellington Jazz Festival, Ziegler leads musicians from two Wellington ensembles, the tango group Bravo Ensemble and Orchestra Wellington.
