Isabelle van Keulen Ensemble
Isabelle van Keulen is a top-notch violinist. She performs in the most famous concert halls all over the world, concurrently recording one exceptional CD after the other. Recently she managed to complete an entirely new project that she had been dreaming about since her early youth: a CD recording and a tour with music by the Argentine tango musician, bandoneon player and composer Astor Piazolla (1921-1992).
Van Keulen first discovered Piazolla’s works when she was about six years old. When her mother gave her an LP with Piazolla’s best-known pieces she was immediately entranced by them. Tango! is therefore a long cherished dream come true. The Isabelle van Keulen Ensemble, especially founded for this purpose, plays Piazolla’s music to perfection: unpolished, raw and naked. From heart to heart.
