The Stables, Wavendon with London Tango Quintet
12 May @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
‘An outstanding ensemble. A virtuoso display all round and a joy to have as part of the festival.’
Beaumaris Festival, Wales
The London Tango Quintet is a unique group of five internationally acclaimed musicians performing tango music at the highest level. Music by the legendary Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla is interspersed with stunning instrumental solos. The result is an energetic, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable evening of relaxed virtuosity.
Chart-topping guitar virtuoso, Craig Ogden, is joined by the extraordinary accordionist, Miloš Milivojević, described by the Times as ‘a hurricane of musical invention‘. Pianist/composer David Gordon regularly tours as a jazz musician, harpsichordist and director of internationally renowned ensembles while double bassist, Richard Pryce, works with all the major orchestras and artists from Jamie Cullum to Shirley Bassey. Violinist and founder of the quintet, David Juritz, made headlines when he busked around the world for charity. His playing has been described by The Strad Magazine as having a quality of ‘aching lyricism … naked expression in the grip of an icy control.’
