Project Description

BINELLI-FERMAN DUO

World-class musicians Daniel Binelli and Polly Ferman have united their talents to develop and further the appreciation of the tango, milonga, candombe, and other Latin American musical forms in the rarely heard partnership of the bandoneón and piano. Their performances reflect the elegance and the subtlety of the traditional tango, the sauciness of the milonga, the romance of the waltz, and the temperament and power of the contemporary tango.

The Binelli-Ferman Duo’s ability to reach out to their audiences in conversation and through music has made its performances an amazing experience for concert enthusiasts worldwide. Since their debut in January 2000 in New York City, they have toured extensively throughout the world including performances in Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Rome, Paris, Munich, Berne, and St. Petersburg, as well as in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Bogota,  Buenos Aires, and Montevideo. In addition to concert appearances, they offer master classes on the music of Argentina and Tango.
