Oakland’s Redwood Tango Ensemble celebrates the vinyl release of Prizefighter, wildly imaginative contemporary tango music written by bandoneonist and composer Charles Gorczynski and developed by the band over the last two years. A deeply personal and adventurous set, the ensemble presents the album in its entirety, along with other contemporary tango works by Diego Schissi, Julian Peralta, Daniel Ruggiero, and Astor Piazzolla.
About the artist:
Redwood Tango Ensemble (RTE) is a contemporary tango sextet from Oakland, California. Led by composer and bandoneonist Charles Gorczynski, the ensemble has developed a signature style and sound within the world of tango composition, writing honest and imaginative music that challenges conventional notions of genre and musical identity. RTE is a tango group in its lifeblood, and its sound and sensibility also reach into new music, chamber music, and modern jazz.
