        Mad Hot Tango: Caeli Smith

        In the performance video segment from From the Top at Carnegie Hall, violinist Caeli Smith plays "Bordel 1900" from Astor Piazzolla's L'histoire du tango ("The History of the Tango"), accompanied by pianist Christopher O'Riley. Originally written for flute and guitar, this version was arranged for violin and piano by Tim Ribchester. Listen for rhythmic patterns that are repeated throughout the song and imagine how dancers would tango to the piece.

        In the profile video segment, Caeli Smith and Christopher O'Riley work with Pablo Ziegler, a pianist who collaborated with Piazzolla for many years and carries on his musical legacy.

        You can see the full episode and a more complete lesson plan at the From the Top at Carnegie Hall Web site.
