Named by Wynton Marsalis as one of the top five jazz musicians under 30 to watch, pianist Chris Pattishall leads this night dedicated to the writings of Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges and the rich history of tango.

Inspired by the short stories of Jorge Luis Borges, an acknowledged literary master of the 20th century, FICTIONS is a set of musical miniatures that blends an imaginative chamber music sensibility with elements of tango, chacacera, candombe and zamba (music and dance forms of Argentina and Uruguay), performed by a virtuosic improvising octet led by Pattishall. Pattishall’s compositions will draw on classic tango such as Angel Villoldo’s “El Choclo,” the symphonic tone poems of Rimsky-Korsakov and Richard Strauss, and the works of Astor Piazzolla.
