Nuevo Tango Ensamble

The Nuevo Tango Ensamble creates some of today's very best interpretations of Piazzolla's standards. The three Italian musicians do not duplicate Piazzolla's performances but clearly extract the essence of the music and showcase it beautifully. In this video of their interpretaion of Invierno Porteño, they have added a clarinetist, Gabriele Mirabassi, who blends very well with the group.

If you enjoy their music, they have several CD's available. Buy them - unfortunately, they are tough to find in the U.S. and they are not yet available on iTunes [Correction: their new album, "Tango Mediterraneo" is available on iTunes (I just bought it). Now, if they will just put "A Night in Vienna" on iTunes.]
