Stroud Arts Festival, Gloucestershire with the London Tango Quintet

The London Tango Quintet, drawn together by a love of the tango, first formed in 2007 and has gained international acclaim for its performances of music by legendary Argentinian composer Astor Piazzola, interspersed with music from the baroque to the contemporary. Founder and director David Juritz, describing the first time he heard Piazolla’s music, says “It was mind-blowing. A kaleidoscope of conflicting emotions and a raw energy I’ve never heard surpassed in any other kind of music.”

Chart topping guitar virtuoso, Craig Ogden, is joined by accordionist, Miloš Milivojević, described by the Times as ‘a hurricane of musical invention’. Pianist/composer David Gordon tours as a jazz musician,harpsichordist and director of internationally renowned ensembles while bassist, Richard Pryce, works with artists from Jamie Cullum to Shirley Bassey. Violinist and founder of the quintet, David Juritz, made headlines when he busked around around the world for charity. His playing has been described as having a quality of ‘aching lyricism…naked expression in the grip of an icy control’.

Come and share the passion of the tango with these 5 superbly talented musicians – and we promise to give you at least one opportunity to get up on your feet!
