New Ensemble: Tango 5!
Sophie Heinrich, Violin
Miloš Todorovski, Bandoneon
Andrea Wild, Electric Guitar
Maria Radutu, Piano
Ivaylo Iordanov, Double Bass
The five of us recently founded our new ensemble Tango 5! Out of passion for the tango, because we believe it is the fantastic essence to build on new concert formats, because we have so many ideas with it – with DJs, dancers, actors – which we want to experience together with you in the concert hall – and not only there. And because our first concert at Friday’s@7 in the Vienna Konzerthaus was so much fun!
The goal is to revive Astor Piazzolla’s tango in the quintet formation of the composer: bandoneon, violin, electric guitar, piano and double bass, the “Tango Nuevo”. But still creating very unique concert experiences: with improvisations and arrangements, sometimes jazzy, with Romanian, Bulgarian or Brazilian influences – just as our origins are very different and multicultural.
Sophie is from Germany, is concertmaster of the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, looks back on an impressive career as a soloist and first concertmaster and has played for many years in the ensemble “Cuarteto Sol Tango”.
Andrea is Austrian, can be heard regularly in the Vienna Volksoper and we were able to persuade her to use her beautiful voice for Tango 5.
Miloš writes our arrangements, is originally from Serbia and with his bandoneon and accordion the one of us that probably moves most often outside of the world of classical music.
Ivo is Sophie’s colleague at the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, brings his Bulgarian influences to Tango 5 and can groove on the double bass like no other. He also has the best associations when it comes to saying how the music should sound.
