The Astoria ensemble specialises exclusively in the works of Astor Piazzolla, transcribed and adapted by the accordionist Christophe Delporte. Astoria brings the Argentine master’s exquisite writing to the fore, preserving all the bewitching rhythmic and melodic charm of the original versions. Made up of five artists, all graduates of Belgium’s Royal Conservatories, international competition winners or members of leading orchestras, Astoria has established a strong identity through the rigor energy and emotions communicated by their performances.
