Beltango Quinteto, founded in 1998 by Aleksandar Nikolic, bandoneonist, teacher, and composer, comes to TangOsud for the first time. The orchestra has an important repertoire ranging from traditional tangos to modern tangos through their own creations (Opus “Balkango”). It is one of the very few European ensembles to be invited by the Argentine Ministry of Culture. The musicians have collaborated with great symphony orchestras (Istanbul Symphony Orchestra, Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra, Vietnam National Orchestra, …). In their interpretation of the tango, we can feel the influence of the spirited and cheerful music of the Balkans with this violin that cries and makes us vibrate.
Solo Tango Orquesta
Solo Tango has become in a short time, a world-famous orchestra in the world of tango. These four virtuosos, from the biggest music academies in Russia, have literally delighted TangOsud in 2017 and 2018.
How not to shudder when listening to their interpretation of Oblivion! We stop dancing to watch and listen to them. Fortunately, in their world tour, they will come again this year in TangOsud !
They are two brothers, bandoneonist and pianist and, in 2019, they will come back with a violinist to give even more volume to their music. Nicola and Antonio have shown us in TangOsud 2018 that they released, both of them, the energy of a large orchestra!
These artists roam the concert halls and tango festivals around the world with virtuosity but also sincerity, availability and simplicity. They collaborate with the greatest dancers and with actors and directors of international fame.
Tango Spleen Orquesta
Tango Spleen Orquesta is composed of Italian artists and directed by an Argentine musician, Mariano Esperanza. Their music is a clever blend of Italy’s warmth and enthusiasm with the soul of Argentina’s traditional tango.
The orchestra is invited regularly in international tango music festivals. His open-mindedness also allows him to collaborate in many modern or classical musical projects, including with great voices of Italian opera.
TangOsud also highlights regional artists. Cuarteto Cabernet is based in Montpellier, and directed by the bandoneonist Nahuel Menendez, well known to the public of Montpellier.
The orchestra will perform at TangOsud … in quintet. The voice of Luciana, Nahuel’s sister, will accompany, with sensuality, the poetic lyrics of the tango. Cabernet is an orchestra accustomed to milongas from southern France with a porteño and arrabelero repertoire appreciated by dancers, music lovers, and Argentine tango lovers.
