"Ziegler went far beyond the confines of Tango, or Latin Jazz, or Bossa Nova, or world music, or classical. He brought something from each to a stew that somehow simultaneously edified and electrified as the quartet effortlessly negotiated myriad tempo changes, key changes, mood changes and shifts from complex unison passagework to stretches of inspired improvisation." James Chute, San Diego Union-Tribune
A consummate ensemble featuring piano, bandoneon, cello and double bass, the Pablo Ziegler Classical Tango Quartet breathes with nuance and refinement, at once subtle and utterly expressive.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Latin Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Ziegler artfully blends classic tango with elements of jazz, adding a new voice to the rich tango lexicon.
Ziegler leads the group in exquisite arrangements of his own compositions as well as the music of tango legends like J.C. Cobian and Piazzolla.
