The CBSO’s acclaimed nuevo tango group hasn’t been resting on its laurels. Tonight we welcome them back to CBSO Centre with an all-new programme spanning the whole history of the Tango, and inspired by the music of Buenos Aires legend – and personal friend of CBSO cellist Eduardo Vassallo – Astor Piazzolla. Aficionados of this remarkable group will know what to expect, but it’s never too soon to discover their high-voltage blend of passion, sophistication and dazzling virtuoso playing.
