Tango Spleen collaborates with other artists in dance and Tango projects, as well as in other music genres.
Tango Spleen Orquesta is chosen for performing with the celebrated tenor Marcelo Alvarez in a show where the tango repertoire meets the expressivity of opera singing. First presented in 2014 at the Novaya Opera Theatre in Moscow within the program “World opera stars”, the show has gained enthusiastic success from the public and critics: “Young virtuosos create true magic on stage!”
The creative union between Marcelo Alvarez and the Tango Spleen Orquesta is the essence of craftmanship, talent and ecstasy. The music is so alive, vibrant and natural that the sense of time and space is lost. A charming and expressive voice along with violin, viola, cello, doublebass, bandoneon (a German harmonica with a great Argentinian destiny) and piano which have a hypnotic power that seduces the listener.
“Created by the pianist Mariano Speranza, Tango Spleen Orquesta defines its music concept in the tango genre. Young virtuosos create true magic on stage!” – Anna Peshkov, 2014
“A concert that the public will remember for a long time” – Maya Dinov, 2014
In 2013 Tango Spleen starts a collaboration with Bernardo Lanzetti (historical singer of Premiata Forneria Marconi) and takes the challenge to rearrange the music of the progressive rock band from the ’70 Acqua Fragile in an orchestral and acoustic way. The show is contained in the cd-dvd publication Vox40 (Ma.ra.cash records).
MALENA MUYALA & TANGO SPLEEN
In 2015 Tango Spleen joins the Uruguayan singer Malena Muyala, platinum record award winner, for her European tour.
ROMEO Y JULIETA TANGO
An important and appealing production. A challenge for the choreographer Luciano Padovani who in the last years has created a number of productions with tango and contemporary dance, often selling out in many Italian theatres. Romeo y Julieta Tango presents on the stage the Shakespearean drama and tells it with the language of tango and contemporary dance. Twelve extraordinary interpreters share the stage with Cuarteto Tipico Tango Spleen. Dancers and Argentinian tangueros create a refined and engaging show.
A production by Compagnia Naturalis Labor
“This tango version of the ethernal story of Romeo and Juliet, that Luciano Padovani has created for the Naturalis Labor company, just works…” – Silvia Poletti Danza & Danza
“The ninety minutes of the show flow quickly and feverish, the Argentinian music played live by Tango Spleen Cuarteto on stage, in alternation with recorded baroque music, gives no room for boredom and creates ever changing expectations… The show was a triumph”. – Athos Tromboni, La Nuova di Ferrara
NOCHES DE BUENOS AIRES
A show in collaboration with the Tango Rouge Company where the Argentinian maestros Neri Piliu and Yanina Quiñones act as directors, choreographer and first dancers.
The show was performed in over 50 cities in Italy and abroad, with the live music by Tango Spleen.
Tours were made in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2019, 2021
