Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
This group plays with consistent excellence. Ensemble is perfection, tone is widely varied and always interesting and attractive. Their rhythmic feel is tight, but free enough to sound like improvisation. Never do I feel that this is a group pretending to understand this music, as I so often find in tango performance. If you like tango, you'll love this. If you're like me, and find most tango performance overwrought, you may still love this. Any presentation of inventive and expressive music played with this much skill and heart is welcome. Excellent notes by Christopher Grafschmidt.
