Lovers of tango, classical, jazz and latin music: the tango sextet Alturas will perform at the Royal Exchange launching their CD Café con Tango on 19th April 2013. A rare opportunity in Newcastle to enjoy tango chamber music of a high calibre.
‘Alturas’ have been performing as a group since 2009. The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas – flute and Jane Andino – piano. It has over the years grown to become a sextet, performing throughout Eastern Australia.
Their debut CD, Café con Tango includes works by Astor Piazzolla, Pablo Ziegler, Fernando Egozcue, as well as traditional tangos and some original tango-inspired pieces.
