Rodolfo Zanetti – Bandoneón

Rodolfo was born in Argentina, where he studied bandoneón with Jorge Puebla and Alberto Hilario Iribarne, and piano with Monica Rizzo and Roberto Urbay at the National University of Cuyo in Mendoza. In 2002, with the support of the Astor Piazzolla Foundation, he was named the musical director of “María de Buenos Aires,” the tango opera with music by Astor Piazzolla, performed in Mendoza.  In 2004, he joined the Bandó quintet, composed of musicians from Mendoza. A year later that ensemble came to the U.S. where their performances in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. were met with enthusiastic acclaim. He has performed with the Pan American Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Lincoln Theater, and George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium.  He currently resides in New York City, where he has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
