01.10.2017 Gala Concert in the £ód¼ Philharmonic:
Orquesta Típica | Misteriosa Buenos Aires
Since many young people have became more and more interested in tango and are going back to the traditions of typical orchestras of the Golden Age of the 1940s, in March 2003 pianist and director Javier Arias created Orquesta Típica Fervor. El Fervor was the only new orchestra to take up the challenge of continuing the stylistic line of Carlos Di Sarli. During the 5 years of its existence, El Fervor issued their own album, ‘Quien Sos’ (2006) and undertook two European tours, in 2007 and 2008. It was the last orchestra to accompany the great singer Oscar Ferrari.
Orquesta Típica | Misteriosa Buenos Aires
Orquesta Típica | Misteriosa Buenos Aires was born in 2008, as a musical proposal to renew the tango dance. Their repertoire is varied and dynamic, and includes classical tangos, tango nuevo, waltzes, milongas, milongas-candombes and Argentine folklore.
The orchestra aims at further developing the genre through new compositions and personal versions of classical tangos. Aware of the cultural and musical changes that have taken place from the 1940's to the present, this project re-enacts a typical orchestra of the bygone era, but with the energy and impact of the new generations, as part of what some already call "the new golden age of tango".
Since 2008, the orchestra has released three albums, ‘De salón’ (2010), ‘Una noche en la milonga’ (2013) and ‘Tu lado acústico’ (2015) and gone on three European tours.
