Fancy a night in Buenos Aires? "QuinTango," a chamber tango quintet (two violins, bass, cello, and piano) based in Northern Virginia, has brought thousands of new fans to the music of Tango by engaging audiences with their sizzling, mind-opening fusion of traditional South American Tango repertoire and classical chamber music style. In keeping with their mission to bring Tango to new audiences, "QuinTango" concerts blend musicianship, audience connection, and great storytelling.
All of "QuinTango’s" repertoire is originally created for the group, with most of the musical arrangements crafted by top-ranking tango composers in Argentina. Concerts usually include 14 -18 tangos, many with short narratives introductions. Audiences meet Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, gauchos, poets and broken-hearted lovers as the Tangos unfold in a kaleidoscope of emotions and historical settings.
