Tango's future

During the week I went to the Twilight Tango concert at the Sydney Conservatorium presented by the Sydney Youth Orchestra and the Sydney Conservatorium - see posting below. If you missed it - you missed a treat!
It was an evening of fantastic live tango music presented by dynamic young musicians led by Maggie Ferguson. Musicians are drawn mostly from both the SYO and the Sydney Conversatorium - and auditions are open for 2010.

As well as the superb TangoOZ which is an associate of the Orquesta Escuela de Tango in Buenos Aires, we were treated to performances of a number of different tango ensembles that have been formed by the students. Outstanding amongst these was the Carlos Gardel band playing 'Por Una Cabeza'.

As a keen follower of these young musicians I am looking forward to being treated to more performances - and to dancing to their music. If you would like to find out more subscribe to the TangoAustralia newsletter or go to Tango Music Australia

This sounds so sensual and exotic and fun.

But one can only do so much in one's life, Angelina, so ocean swimming will remain my calling - until further notice.

I envy your access to such performances. All the instruments playing Tango music together are so beautiful, but the one that really sets me off every time is the upright (double) bass!

When the bass and piano hold down the rhythm for the violins to play the melody, I simply close my eyes and relax.

Pugliese's "Tierra Querida" is a perfect example of the bass driving the music. Check it out!
