Tango 44 celebrates the explosive dance music of Argentina in a programme of tango and popular classics – Tanguero Passion. Tango is passion, tango is nostalgia, tango is the allure of Buenos Aires; the danger of porteño knife fights, of broken hearts, and the dance that embodies it. More than any other dance style, tango is the soul of Argentina, and more than any other composer, Astor Piazzolla is the intensity of tango.
The programme features works that have made Piazzolla a household name and taken the world by storm – Libertango, Oblivion, and the Four Seasons, but audiences love other music too – the wondrous Ave Maria, the ebullient Pampeanas and the Demare and Mores standards Malena and Uno . Relive the early days of tango in Buenos Aires, come and dance to our blend of the best of Argentine dance music
Tango 44 is Jonathan Truscott on violin, Pavlos Carvalho on cello, Mark Troop on piano and Corina Piatti, vocalist.
