Since 1999 Tangoheart has been the premier
tango ensemble in the Northwest, The
ensemble is a classic, authentic orquesta typica which
contains a piano, contrabajo, violins, and the bandoneon,
the Argentine instrument with its emblematic tango sound.
The group is led by Port Townsend’s Bertram
Levy, who has spent the last quarter century immersed in the
Argentine tango. Since 2005, he has spent much of his time
studying the bandoneon in Buenos Aires where he studies at
the Conservatorio Manuel de Falla with the great Rodolfo
Daluisio and from where he brings back fresh material for
the group. The
group’s driving bass lines belong to jazz arranger,
performer and longtime tanguero
Andy Carr on the piano and the great Todd Gowers,
Seattle’s bassist for all seasons.
The string section includes world music specialist
Ruthie Dornfeld on first violin and Seattle Symphony’s
emeritus violist Dorothy Shapiro on second.
Tangoheart's dance program includes tangos,
waltzes and milongas ranging from the guardia viejo to the
modern period.. Individual tandas are devoted to the
particular styles and arrangements from classic composers
such as Canaro, D'Arienzo,.DiSarli, Troilo, and Pugliese.
