From once upon a time at San Francisco’s First Friday poetry reading at Macchiarini Creative Design in North Beach, maestro Mauro ffortissimo delivering this beautiful tango called ‘Invierno Porteño’ by Astor Piazzolla, the third of four tangos Piazzolla wrote about the seasons of Buenos Aires.

Mauro also helped found ‘Flower Piano’ which is a favorite of pianists and listeners alike hosted by the botanical gardens in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park September 8 – 12.

This is part of our ongoing ‘Music In Poetry’ series where musical segments are extracted from poetry readings people may otherwise never hear.
