Pannonica Quartet

De geschiedenis van de tango blijft in
beweging. Het Pannonica Quartet
brengt de essentie uit de Gouden Eeuw
van de Tango terug met zijn vier saxofoons.
Op zoek naar de belangrijkste elementen
die ervoor zorgen dat een danser over de vloer
gaat en de geluiden die emotie oproepen bij de
luisteraar, heeft Pannonica Quartet zich verdiept
in de arrangementen van traditioneleorkesten
en een unieke interpretatieve stijl ontwikkeld.
Het Pannonica Quartet, bekroond met de
Doble Ocho International Tango Competition-prijs,
trad op in verschillende steden van Nederland, Spanje, België, Frankrijk en werkte samen met internationale bekende artiesten als Gustavo Beytelmann en Arno Bornkamp. Hun repertoire omvat arrangementen van de traditionele tango-orkesten zoals Tanturi, DiSarli, D’Arienzo, Canaro, Troilo en Pugliese, en hun eigen persoonlijke interpretaties van Piazzolla.
