Tango stands for the music of Astor Piazzolla, 5 for the musicians, their very own style and their very different origins. Founded in 2021, the ensemble consists of members of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and established soloists from the classical and jazz scene. With the tango as a common stage in the original instrumentation of Piazzolla (violin, bandoneon, (electric) guitar, piano and double bass) their programs sometimes the closest connection to the original tradition, sometimes in a completely new, individual way!
Their own arrangements and spontaneous improvisations make the ensemble unmistakable; its tango is sometimes jazzy or balkanesque, with Viennese echoes or a bossa nova touch – just as the origin of the musicians is colorful and multicultural. This results in a musical mix of classic from baroque to the 21st century, crossover and world music.
After the debut concert in the Wiener Konzerthaus, Tango5 has played to full houses in Austria: irrepressible energy, proximity to the audience, alternating moderations by the musicians and their stylistic versatility make every Tango5 concert a unique experience.
The violinist Sophie Heinrich comes from Bavaria, has been concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra since 2019 and is an internationally sought-after chamber musician, soloist, mentor and violin professor. Miloš Todorovski was born in Serbia and works as an accordionist, bandoneonist and composer of contemporary, tango, jazz and world music. He was a long-time member of the ensemble at Burgtheater. The native Viennese Andrea Wild has been playing the guitar since she was four years old and playfully moves between sound worlds and styles: she plays all types of guitar, from banio to contra, and can be seen regularly at the Vienna Volksoper. The Austrian-Romanian pianist Maria Radutu regularly plays as a soloist with orchestras such as the RSO Vienna, Las Vegas Philharmonic, California Symphony, Zagreb Philharmonic and many more, in Europe, Asia and the USA. Ivaylo Iordanov has been a member of the double bass section of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra since 2004. In addition to his classical career, he has many years of experience with Latin American music.
