Five acclaimed musicians drawn together by a love of the tango. Chart topping guitar virtuoso, Craig Ogden, is joined by the extraordinary accordionist, Miloš Milivojević, described by the Times as 'a hurricane of musical invention'. Pianist/composer David Gordon regularly tours as a jazz musician, harpsichordist and director of internationally renowned ensembles while double bassist, Richard Pryce, works with all the major orchestras and artists from Jamie Cullum to Shirley Bassey. Violinist and founder of the quintet, David Juritz, made headlines when he busked around the world for charity. His playing has been described by The Strad Magazine as having a quality of 'aching lyricism … naked expression in the grip of an icy control.'
