Tango de Saxos

Details

Nexas Quartet entrances you with the rhythms and sounds of Buenos Aires.

Performing tango classics and a brand-new work by Argentinean composer Fernando Lerman, the Quartet transports you right in amongst the hustle and bustle of Argentinean streets from the early 1920s right through to the modern day.

The saxophone, with its flexibility and expressiveness, is the perfect instrument to guide you on this journey, and what better experience than with four of Australia’s leading players.

Nexas Quartet is also joined by guest artists Daniel Rojas and Stephen Cuttriss.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Nexas Quartet
