Tango - a mixture of powerful feelings, great passion, deep melancholy... The pieces are a charming combination of the plaintive, soulful Argentinian tango and it's light-footed European counterpart, of bossa nova, cool jazz and classical chamber music. In 1983, Peter Ludwig, a tango addict for over thirty years now, founded the legendary ensemble 'Tango Mortale'. As a composer and arranger, Peter Ludwig interprets the tango very much in his own style. His tangos are not of the exclusively gloomy, depressive and darkly emotional type we know from Argentina. His instrumental arrangements are characterized by his inspired imaginative power, which with each piece of music takes US on excursions into realms of fantasy and tells US stories of life, love and misfortune.
