ASTOR PIAZZOLLA LIBERTANGO Ian Maksin & Goran Ivanovic Trio  cello guitar


  • Tue

    Jun 2

    Chicago, IL, US | 7:00pm

    After their sold out appearance earlier this year, Cellist Ian Maksin and guitarist Goran Ivanovic are back at City Winery Chicago for a new round of their unique collaboration! Two of Chicago’s hottest solo instrumental artists are joining their talents once again to create a one-of-a-kind fusion of styles and sonorities: Ivanovic’s electrifying mix of Balkan, Arabic and Flamenco with Maksin’s soulful blend of classical, jazz and world music. The eclectic program will range from solo numbers of Ivanovic’s and Maksin’s original compositions as well as Maksin’s ground-breaking and funky solo cello arrangements of Top 40, rock and blues tunes, to full-band renditions of folk songs from different corners of the world, funky arrangements of popular classical pieces as well as their own original compositions. And by popular demand, there will be more Astor Piazzolla! Maksin and Ivanovic will be backed by two of Chicago’s most sought-after musicians, percussionist Peter Pete Tashjian and bassist Matt Ulery.
