The London Tango Quintet is a unique group of five internationally acclaimed musicians, including guitar virtuoso, Craig Ogden, who were drawn together by a love of the tango. Music by legendary Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla is interspersed with pieces by other tango composers together with instrumental solos featuring music by Albéniz and Django Reinhardt. The result is an energetic, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable evening of relaxed virtuosity.

'We had a wonderful evening with the Quintet, they played brilliantly individually and together. The audience really enjoyed the tango pieces, but also very much appreciated the more classical solos which interspersed the programme. The evening had a great atmosphere.'
