Cuartetango Music & Dance features Leonardo Suarez Paz, a multi-talented, 4th generation tanguero of unparalleled heritage, billed as "Tango Royalty" (All About Jazz, UK/Erie Times), who starred in the iconic Tangox2, Perfumes de Tango, The Mariano Mores Show, as a violin soloist and dancer as well as Broadway productions of Forever Tango and Tango Argentino. He is accompanied by the Latin GRAMMY-Award nominated Cuartetango string quartet, a guest bandoneonist, singers and tango dancers featured on Broadway, television and film, Teatro Colon Opera House and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The artists embody the “fiery steps and the spirit of Buenos Aires,” (M. Quintanilha, Wexner Center) and represent the "authentic spirit of Tango” (Latin Grammy, LARAS) in this theatrical chamber concert.
The show invites you into the magical Buenos Aires – the city of tango – into its intimate world of stories and dreams – of Carlos Gardel, an illegitimate boy who becomes Argentina’s biggest superstar, of a porteño who allures a young lady into a street milonga with his convoluted brisk steps, of a mastermind composer, Piazzolla, who invades hearts and concert halls with his new tango that speaks many languages and genres, or of a genius poet Ferrer who transgresses semantics playing a musical scale of his profuse linguistic creations and who speaks of Leonardo:
“It is Leonardo Suarez Paz’s enchanted, inspired and creative soul that invades the warm balconies of this tango concert and come to greet us with a dreaming gesture..... Because it is very much of Tango this talented exhibition enjoys angels and devils, so that nothing goes unnoticed..."
- Horacio Ferrer, Poet & Lyricist, Creator of Nuevo Tango, Nobel Prize Nominee in Literature
