The Fugata Quintet was formed in early 2007 following a concert at the Royal Academy of Music. That concert was prompted by our joint curiosity and passion for the works of Astor Piazzolla. Our mutual desire to explore his repertoire further and to form a permanent quintet has been motivated by our appreciation and admiration for Piazzolla who was not just another Tango composer, but the founder of an innovative, original, twentieth-century style of composition. Nuevo Tango is a fusion of classical composition techniques with elements of jazz and tango.
