Following a string of successful performances in New South Wales, the Brisbane-based Mendoza Tango Quartet are excited to be performing in their home city for their final concert of 2015.
Held on Thursday 3 December at 7:30pm at 4MBS Performance Studio, Coorparoo, the concert will feature the Mendoza Tango Quartet’s spirited depictions of the tango in a tribute to the unique Argentinian art form.
Music full of passion and pain, flirtation and fire, nostalgia and nonsense, the Tango is the music of emotion, of experience and of the people.
The Mendoza Tango Quartet, a diverse group of musicians with roots as widespread as Australia, the UK, and Sweden, will be performing nuevo tango music by Piazzolla as well as golden age tango classics by maestros such as Canaro, Laurenz, Padula, Pugliese and Troilo for milongueros to dance to.
“As lovers of tango music, the art of the dance form, and of course the accompanying wine, we felt there was a void in the Brisbane arts scene that we could fill with our music,” says Stephen Cuttriss, bandoneonist and Mendoza Tango Quartet member/founder who is currently dividing his time between Brisbane and Buenos Aires as he completes his PhD at the Queensland Conservatorium.
“After several well-received performances in New South Wales this year, we decided a fitting finale for 2015 would be performing in our home city.”
For those drawn to the tango dance form, there will be some space to dance in the venue during the concert as well as plenty of seating for those who prefer to simply sit and listen.
Tickets are available for $15 at the door or by pre-booking from www.mendozamusic.com. Bookings are strongly recommended.
