Per Störby is the musical motor in New Tango Orquesta as composer and artistic leader. He have developed a unique mix of fugues, counterpoint, improvisation, dynamic, minimalism and baroque music. The very newest music investigates, even more far-reaching, all possibilities in the ensemble's acoustic sound palette, with more accent on the art- and chamber music than before.
