Phoenix Collective Tango Quartet returns with its first concert of 2021, Knife in the Boot, featuring legendary bandoneon player Maggie Ferguson, founder of TangoOz, pianist Edward Neeman, Isabella Brown on double bass and Phoenix Collective director and violinist Dan Russell,
The ensemble will explore early and traditional works from the birthplace of Tango, Buenos Aires performing music by the father of Nuevo Tango, Astor Piazzolla. Not the usual Hollywood, rose-in-the-teeth, but the knife in the boot style of Tango.
Phoenix Collective began in 2018 as an initiative of well-known violinist, Dan Russell as a means to play high art music with exceptional musicians who share similar views musically, artistically and emotionally. In just 3 years they are performing to fans in 3 cities, in unique core venues and run several additional projects, recordings, music society performances and workshop engagements.
With two new live concert series soon to be announced and an ever-increasing recording and external project workload, Phoenix is rising.
