Quartango: Tangos from the Barrios to the Ballroom
When classically trained musicians come together to explore their passion for tango, the result is nothing short of delightful. Quartango takes tango in new directions, with impeccable arrangements, subtle and unexpected allusions to classical music, and a liberal dose of humour, all woven together by the elegant interplay of ensemble playing at its best.
Quartango’s program ranges from the classic tangos to tango nuevo and Piazzolla. They also explore other genres, from jazz and opera to waltzes and jigs, in their own inimitable style. Quartango has charmed audiences across Canada and the United States, and in Tokyo, Taipei, Paris and São Paulo. They stole the show at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, and have also appeared with the National Arts Centre Orchestra and the Orchestre Métropolitain. This past summer Quartango performed outdoor concerts with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, attracting a total of more than 60,000 spectators.
