La Juan D’Arienzo debuted in 2012 and won the Premio Tango for Best Orchestra in 2018. It is made up of four bandoneons, three violins, a double bass, and a piano. The Orquesta plays music in the style of the later years of the original Juan D’Arienzo orchestra, with all of its energy and rhythm. The Orquesta’s first bandoneonist and artistic director, Facundo Lázzari, inherited the orchestra name from his grandfather, Carlos Lázzari, first bandoneonist and arranger of the original Juan D’Arienzo orchestra.
