Tango Coming Up in King's Road, London!

tango 1. : a ballroom dance of Latin-American origin in 2⁄4 time with a basic pattern of step-step-step-step-close and characterized by long pauses and stylized body positions; also : the music for this dance
Who doesn't enjoy a bit of tango on a Saturday night? As many of you know, today's classical musicians are not only at home in concert halls, there are a rising number of cross-over projects happening in jazz or world music venues, hot bars in town and unexpected locations - this is a colourful side of classical music that we love following! So do drop us a line if you have something coming up that you would like us to mention!

For some Satruday night #classicalbuzz in London, soprano Ann Liebeck wrote to us telling us about her event at the Pizza Express Jazz Club Pheasantry:

"Looking forward to performing with Julian Rowlands on bandoneon and piano at our debut at Pizza Express Jazz Club Pheasantry on the iconic Kings Road in London. The programme is entitled Piaf and Tango-From Paris to Buenos Aires and I have written a new tango which we will perform alongside some favourite songs and heart-rending tangos, all arranged by Julian Rowlands. It is called Hommage to Piaf and is a celebration of the music of the city streets, the bal -musette and the Milonga. I wrote it in Berlin last month, another city with a great tradition of Tango and Cafe Society. It also has operatic influences, of course, being a Tango Habanera a la Carmen! Julian is a noted composer and arranger of tangos, notably for the Olivier award-nominated show Midnight Tango and I am thrilled he will perform it with me on the night of April 2nd.

We will also be launching our new cd Violetta's Last Tango."

Curious? Here is a track from the CD; here is a track from the cd: Sus ojos se cerraron by Carlos Gardel arr. Julian Rowlands. You can also follow Ann Liebeck on Hello Stage!
