In Die Kunst der Fuge, Bach composed not only one of his greatest but also one of his most enigmatic pieces. At first sight, comparisons with the Argentinean tango may seem absurd. However, the Glorvigen Trio proves otherwise! Using a violin, bandoneon and double bass they bring Bach’s complex fugues to life with an abundance of passion and southern temperament.  They combine the various fugues with fiery tangos by Piazzolla, de Caro and Cobián. Don’t miss this thrilling expedition from pious 18th-century Germany to the hot-blooded South America of the 20th century!
