Featured on ABC Radio National Daily Planet 4/5/15

"Beautiful Tango sounds with a jazz influence from our featured group tonight (Monday) for an almost exclusively South American show."

Posted by ABC RN Daily Planet on Monday, 4 May 2015

 

Alturas are a Sydney-based quintet specialising in the performance of contemporary tango with distinct jazz influences.

 

With a constantly expanding repertoire, Alturas push boundaries with unique reworkings of traditional tangos, along with stunning arrangements of Piazzolla, Ziegler, Egozcue and contemporary composers including several original pieces.    

Alturas released their second CD "sin palabras" in May 2015.

This CD features jazzy interpretations of tango with soaring sax and piano solos combined with blissful violin, viola, flute and alto flute backed up by strong bass lines.  Includes works from Venezuela and Brazil as well as many Argentinean classics which all have subtle references to tango.

Final concerts for this month.
