Duo Bandini-Chiacchiaretta 

When: Sat., Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $26-$30
Internationally, the guitar is often considered the essential instrument for tango, but in Argentina you're not tangoing until someone breaks out the bandoneon. The squeezebox instrument has a plaintive, yearning tone when played by a master such as Cesare Chiacchiaretta. Together with the gifted guitarist Giampaolo Bandini, Chiachiaretta coaxes aching desire out of his instrument while performing the music of Ástor Piazzolla and other Argentinian greats. Even their silences are dramatic, as heard on the Duo Bandini-Chiacchiaretta rendition of Gerardo Matos Rodríguez's familiar "La Cumparasita" — they hang so long on the pause before the final refrain you find yourself leaning forward in anticipation. The St. Louis Classical Guitar Society presents Duo Bandini-Chiacchiaretta tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Sheldon (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-533-9900 or Tickets are $26 to $30.
