Leonardo Suarez Paz’s CUARTETANGO string quartet & Bandoneon
Leonardo Suarez Paz leads the double Latin GRAMMY-Award nominated CUARTETANGO string quartet to the forefront of 21st century Nuevo Tango, following in the footsteps of his mentor, the revolutionary composer Astor Piazzolla. A “virtuoso extraordinaire on the violin” (Wynton Marsalis) and a 4th generation tango artist, Leonardo brings forth a new vision of Argentina’s rich culture with “a serious pitch to the black-tie segment,” (Los Angeles Times) – the classical string quartet that “personifies and embodies the authentic spirit of Tango” (Latin Grammy).
Cuartetango released its first album L’Atelier on EMI Classics and has been featured in the Sala Grande of the Teatro Colon Opera House and Teatro Alvear in Buenos Aires, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and The Metropolitan Museum in New York, Chautauqua Institution, Cleveland Museum of Art, Buenos Aires Tango Festival, in a PBS WHYY special, Emmy-winning TV special “Rhythm & Roots,” on WQXR, National Radio in Argentina and live at the 13th Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony. This special program with bandoneon will features compositions from Cuartetango’s album Masters of Bandoneon, which received a double Latin GRAMMY-Award nomination as Best Tango Album and Best Classical Contemporary Composition.
