The Mendoza Tango Quartet - Nuevo Tango: Influence of Classical Music on Astor Piazzolla at Byron Bay Tango Festival - Byron Theatre

The Mendoza Tango Quartet has quickly gained a reputation as one of Australia’s leading exponents of tango.

Made up of four fiery musicians from across Australia, the group specialises in the performance of traditional and contemporary Argentinian tango music.

In this concert, the contribution to nuevo tango of the renowned Piazzolla Quinteto will be featured by the addition of talented guitarist Joe Fallon (Brisbane) to the quartet. The considerable influence of classical composers on the music of Piazzolla will be canvassed by distinguished pianist and academic Shan Deng, who will open the concert with works by Bach, Ravel and Chopin.
