On Sunday 6th September, we will be performing in Angels & Demons with acclaimed septet Tango Siempre and Soprano Ann Liebeck.

Discover the tango masterworks of legendary Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. In the 1950s, Piazzolla shook up the world of traditional tango with his new style termed 'nuevo tango', incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. Although controversial during his lifetime, he soon became an important musical figure and is now known as one of the world's foremost composers of tango music.

Angels and Demons features Piazzolla's rarely performed vocal tango ballads, plus instrumental works by classic tango masters of the Golden Age of Tango.

The concert also features a guest appearance by baritone Nuno Silva.
