Sultry, dark and simultaneously uplifting, Alturas performs modern tango with a jazz twist.  

 

Inspired by the music of Argentina, Alturas fuse the talents of concert pianist, chamber violinist, jazz bassist, reeds player and accordion with a tango flautist.  The result is a sophisticated chamber ensemble that will take you to places you never imagined.

In 2016 Alturas can be heard in live performances in Sydney and Canberra, as well as a major project in September.

 

Performing with Alturas are:

Gaye Thomas - flute/alto flute

Inge Courtney-Haentjes – violin/viola

Greg Gibson - saxophones/clarinets

Gary Daley - accordion

Stan Valacos - double bass/guitar

Daniel Rojas - piano.
