Since 2008 "Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet" has developed their own unique style of tango music reflecting both innovation and tradition. Inspired by the golden age tango orchestras, the ensemble managed to reach an evolutionary synthesis of traditional tango and contemporary feeling.
On stage the communication between the four musicians is allowing, expressive, playful and tight. They flirt with a chamber musical expression without ever leaving the unpredictable spontaneousness within popular music and improvisation. Various grooves and different ornaments reveal the members personal playing styles.
Alejandro Ziegler's own compositions come alive through surprising arrangements as well as intimate interplay. With their special sound, a unique mix of tango, improvisation and romantique, they have gained territory all over the world.
Their focused performances are a complete acoustic, dynamic, and musically masterpiece one should never miss.
