|Gypsy Tango Pasión is a unique and
explosive new fusion, inspired by music from the back streets and
bordellos of Argentina and the gypsy encampments of Eastern Europe.
Combining the hot-blooded sensuality of Tango and the passion and fire of
gypsy fiddling, Gypsy Tango Pasión creates a virtuosic, colourful and
awesomely powerful musical experience.Conceived by the group's cellist,
Chris Grist and created by the group's violinist, Adam Summerhayes (above),
and pianist, David Gordon, Gypsy Tango Pasión explores the inherent
similarities of these traditions that sprang from closely related roots
and have continued to grow along parallel paths since the late 19th
century before going on to be embraced by the concert halls of the West.
This stunningly vibrant and virtuosic show will make two appearances in London to finish their UK tour - firstly, Vivaldi moves aside for them in St. Martin-in-the-Fields on Tuesday 27 November and they finish up at the South Bank's Purcell Room on Sunday December 16.
