Tango pianist, arranger and composer
Pablo Estigarribia is a world renown virtuoso Tango pianist, arranger and composer, that began his musical journey in Classical Music at the age of 5 in Buenos Aires and had its culmination when he was awarded with the 1st Prize of the "Bienal Juvenil" National Competition for Young Artists (2005, Buenos Aires). After performing for several years in Argentina and even collaborating with Congress Chamber Orchestra (Buenos Aires, 2009), National Radio Orchestra (Buenos Aires, 2007) and the Chaco Symphony (Resistencia, 2006), Estigarribia took a brief detour through jazz and then discovered Tango in 2005, when he was awarded with the Orquesta Escuela de Tango scholarship for joining the ensemble under the directorship of Maestro Emilio Balcarce, with whom he had his first European tour. He continued the path as a Tango performer through Germany, France, Belgium, Japan, Russia, Finland, Canada, USA and Cuba, in over 1000 concerts, with elite Argentine tango artists such as Maria Graña, Victor Lavallén, Leopoldo Federico, Nestor Marconi, Horacio Cabarcos, Emilio Balcarce and many others.The attainment of the prestigious Gardel Prize in 2015 for Best Tango Album by a New Artist with his recording Tangos Para Piano (EPSA music), with the highest rating by the local press, deemed Estigarribia the recognition of the Argentine Tango industry. He also was awarded with the Medal of Honor by the Argentine Tango Society for his educational interventions in Stowe Tango Music Festival (Vermont) in 2014, 2015 and 2019. Estigarribia’s ascendancy in career brought him to Japan in 2016 where he was fervently celebrated and highlighted in the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper. His success continued to the United States in 2017/18, when he played the famous Blue Note Jazz and he made appearances on NBC, Univision, Telemundo, and The Huffington Post. Privileged to have studied and performed for numerous years with legendary tango musicians such as Emilio Balcarce, Horacio Cabarcos, Maria Graña, and to have composed and arranged for a decade with former Osvaldo Pugliese arranger Victor Lavallén, Estigarribia proudly assumes the role of transmitting his knowledge and expertise to the new generation of students and tango music enthusiasts. He believes in respectfully showcasing the beauty of his lineage, and above all, reopening the passage of virtuoso tango music repertoire to musicians. With that in mind, Estigarribia published his original compositions and arrangements of traditional pieces -Tangos de Concierto- and teaches regularly in Tango Festivals all over the World, including Stowe Tango Music Festival (Vermont), San Francisco Conservatory and Dartmouth College. He was also Jury of the prestigious "Orquesta Escuela de Tango" in Buenos Aires, and 3 times jury of the “Che Bandoneon” competition in Stowe, Vermont. The morphing of a classically trained pianist with considerable jazz influence and the soul of Argentine Tango, is rare; and with it, the perfect blend of a distinctive sound rooted in Tango music is born. Spectators will experience the exquisite fusion of classical textures, jazz harmonies and the foundational rhythm and structure of Argentine tango in Estigarribia’s powerful delivery of his unique, complex and virtuosic tango compositions and arrangements.
