Solo Tango Orquesta
Solo Tango Orquesta is the first Russian tango orchestra which has gained international recognition. It is the official orchestra of the world’s largest international tango festivals such as Berlin Tango festival, Istanbul Tango festival, OsterTango (Basel, Switzerland), Siracusa International Tango Festival Tangoamadeus (Vienna, Austria), Dresden Tango Festival (Germany), Karlsruhe Tango Festival (Germany) , Milonguero Nights (Moscow, Russia), Planetango (Moscow, Russia), Tango of White Nights (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), just to mention a few.
In August 2012 Solo Tango Orquesta conquered its new peak: Two-week tour in the homeland of Tango, namely in Buenos-Aires, ended with a grand success. The orchestra has literally “exploded” the oldest milongas of Buenos-Aires, among which are: La Baldosa, Salon Canning, La Viruta. In La Viruta the orchestra was asked to play an encore six times! Moreover, Solo Tango Orquesta gave a two-hour live interview to the national tango radio La 2 x 4, which aroused tremendous interest of the audiences of Argentine and other countries of Latin America.
“Solo Tango Orquesta” has performed together with many world-famous stars of Argentine Tango. Among the prominent tango couples it has had the pleasure of working with are: Miguel Zotto, Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda, Sebastian Achaval & Roxana Suarez, Ruben & Sabrina Veliz, Lucila Cionci & Joe Corbata, Ariadna Naveira & Fernando Sanchez, Gaston Torelli & Moira Castellano, Fabian Peralta & Lorena Ermocida, Yanina and Neri, Los Totis, Fransisko Forkera & Carolina Bonavenruta, and many others.
The sound of the orchestra is distinguished by its exceptional sense of style, incredible energy transmitted to the audience and high quality mastery. The orchestra is comprised of the top quality professional Russian musicians performing in the genre of Argentine Tango - Ivan Talanin (bandoneon), Aleksand Riazanov (violin), Artem Timin (piano), and Ilya Alpeev (base).
