Duo Scofano Minetti

We are facing a pure experience, a tango with open veins…since Scofano, with his bandoneón, doesn’t interpret the tango, he interprets the secret codes embedded in tango... he is unique in the world. On the other hand, Alfredo Minetti is a concert pianist who transits with incredible easiness before the complex interpretive pathways of tango
PRENSA RICINTO UNIVERSITARIO DE MAYAGUEZ

Duo Scofano Minetti
bandoneón and piano
Presents a superb repertory of  Traditional and ​New Chamamé, Argentine Tangos, Brazilian Classics​ and Original Compositions 
with overpowering virtuosity and poignant interpretations. New compositions by bandoneonist Scofano, and classic tango selections arranged by both musicians, are rendered with astonishing power and indescribable beauty.
