Tomas Cotik, Tao Lin, Glenn Basham

The tangos of legendary performer and composer Astor Piazzolla are informed by a multicultural upbringing which saw him introducing the influences of Classical, Jazz, Rock and Klezmer music into a unique Nuevo Tango style which still sounds fresh and modern today. Histoire du Tango sums up the genre’s entire evolution, Le Grand Tango is a virtuoso show-stopper, while Melodía en la menor expresses deep personal turmoil. Renowned Argentinian violinist Tomas Cotik’s special arrangements also include Oblivion and Libertango, two of Piazzolla’s most popular and enduring pieces.
