Cuarteto Tanguero specializes in presenting the styles of traditional tango masters, such as D’Arienzo, Biagi, Di Sarli, Pugliese, Troilo and Canaro, in a quartet format — bandoneón, violin, contrabass, piano.
We study historical recordings and manuscripts to distill the essence of tango’s past in order to share all that is universal in tango with our audience. We also present contemporary tango compositions that embody the same essence, such as works by Julián Peralta and Aaron Travers.
With wide-ranging styles of tango at our fingertips, we are ready for every scenario: in concert as a quartet, with orchestra and chorus, tango dance parties, tango shows with dancers and staging, and more.
Cuarteto Tanguero also runs a yearly workshop for musicians and dancers of all ages and abilities focusing on instrumental and cultural practices of tango. We teach online tango classes, as well as commission arrangements and educational materials, such as Julián Peralta’s manual for tango orchestra arrangement.
Ben Bogart, bandoneón; Daniel Stein, violin; Matt McConahay, bass; Winnie Cheung, piano.
