About

Clarinet, accordion and cello – definitely an unusual ensemble. It sounds like both exquisite chamber music and smoky nightclubs. In their search for suitable repertoire, the classically trained Berlin ensemble Trio NeuKlang discovered the tango. Nikolaj Abramson (clarinet), Jan Jachmann (accordion) and Arthur Hornig (cello) are not content with the existing compositions in this genre, however, but also play familiar Classical and Romantic works as tangos.

The three young musicians – all of them prize winners at prestigious instrumental competitions – cleverly and creatively transform Classical themes and motifs into new works, thus offering a passionate new perspective on the originals.

After recording Astor Piazzolla’s Tangos Nuevos for their last CD, 'Lost in Tango', they now say 'Goodbye Astor'. On their new album they devote themselves exclusively to Classical music and discover its tango potential. They weave the piano concertos of Grieg, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky into a homogeneous pattern of motifs, make the witches on Mussorgsky’s bald mountain dance to Argentinian rhythms and pose the question of whether or not Mozart’s last work was a tango.
