The quartet Tanguarda has received rave reviews.  They had a hugely successful night when they played at Carablanca at the end of January and we are delighted to have them back.

Tanguarda was formed by pianist and tango dancer Maria Martinova and is based in Holland.

 

 

 

 

 




We have again hired Conway Hall's prize possession, the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano.  These pianos are noted for their dark, full-bodied sound.

 

This is an unusual evening as Tanguarda will play a concert set.  This is not unusual on the continent but, so far as I know, this will be the first time a concert set has been played in a milonga here.  The concert set will be for listening only.  You may wish to sit upstairs in the balcony.

Tanguarda's music, both for dancing and for concerts, is superb.  Conway Hall was designed as a concert hall, so we have an acoustic for good quality sound.  We are hiring the grand piano, using Conway Hall's sound system and engaging a dedicated sound engineer with the highest quality microphones to ensure the sound quality is the best.
