The result is an energetic, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable evening of relaxed virtuosity.

“We had a wonderful evening with the Quintet, they played brilliantly individually and together. The audience really enjoyed the tango pieces, but also very much appreciated the more classical solos which interspersed the programme.  The evening had a great atmosphere.”
Bradfield Festival of Music, Sheffield

'An exciting, fiery and energetic performance to be enjoyed by all. I cannot recommend London Tango Quintet enough.’

Handel, Overture to Giulio Cesare in Egitto

Handel, Sinfonia: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Solomon)

‘Il Filo’ by David Gordon (world premiere)
Craig Ogden (classical guitar)
Miloš Milivojević (accordion)

Written for, and in collaboration with, Craig and Miloš, this is David Gordon’s third concerto. Il Filo - the thread - relates to an 18th-century approach to composition described by Leopold Mozart and others, in which ideas are subtly developed and knitted together, perhaps also with the implied idea of conversational engagement that feels appropriate to a double concerto. The eponymous first movement is in a flowing 7/8 rhythm while ‘Snapshots’ is a high-energy romp that gives the soloists a jazz workout.
