The London Tango Orchestra is the largest professional tango group in the country, a real "orquesta tipica" uniting leading UK tango musicians with players from Argentina.
The orchestra was founded in 2009 by Caroline Pearsall (the orchestra’s 1st violinist) and it is the first of its kind in the UK. The orchestra performs music from the rich repertoire of tango, old and new, sharing its love of tango music through concerts, milongas and workshops and cultural exchanges between musicians from Europe, USA and Argentina. Their first album of tangos Primeros Pasos came out in September 2014 and is an independent release available on CDBaby. Their repertoire includes classic tunes by Troilo, Pugliese, Di Sarli, D’Arienzo, and a host of others.
In October 2016 Andrew Oilver, the pianist from the London Tango Orchestra supplied the music for QTL's launch at it's new Vauxhall venue. The night was a success and the we look forward to welcoming Andrew and other members in the future.
