Virtuosic Ensemble playing tango, gypsy and folk traditions.
Gypsy Noire comprises of violinists Julia Watson and Madeline Antoine, and pianist/piano accordionist Sarah Saunders. With a passion for the fiery music of tango and gypsy traditions this trio packs a punch with their rhythmic drive and virtuosic display of musicality which weave together the new and the old in musical mastery.
Sarah and Julia have both had first hand experience studying under the current day 'masters' of tango at the Reed tango school for musicians in the US, collaborating with players from Buenos Aires and further. With their learned experience and ongoing passion for making great music this trio will keep you engaged with lush string lines, rhythm to get your toes tapping, and a virtuosity garnered through their collective experience and study as inspired classical musicians. Join us for an exploration of Tango Nuevo with compositions from Piazzolla through to current day composers of this fabulous musical culture!
