Tango music — for two pianos — will be the order of the day on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 15-16, as pianists Pablo Ziegler and Christopher O’Riley will team up for a pair of concerts. The performances begin at 8 p.m. in the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef Studio Theatre.
Both pianists have been here before. Ziegler played at Mondavi in April 2011 with his 12-piece band Beyond Tango. O’Riley played a pair of concerts in November 2010 featuring his own piano transcriptions of songs by Radiohead.
O’Riley told The Enterprise that he is looking forward to this collaboration.
