TANGO, FOUR HANDS AND A PIANO

When Paula Suárez and Leda Torres met, they knew exactly what they wanted to accomplish: to evoke the sounds of a quintet, an orchestra and even a lone bandoneón using just a piano. Through tango they seek to express the highest degree of emotion with a single instrument.
Both pianists were classically trained but have also been strongly influenced by Argentine popular music. In addition to studying in institutions such as the Morón Conservatory, the Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda (Avellaneda School of Popular Music) and the University of San Martin, they have also dedicated themselves to understanding music in a more practical, playful way than tradition demands.

This can be seen in their work as pianists, arrangers and entrepreneurs in diverse musical projects which have been inspired by their enthusiasm for understanding and renewing Argentina music.
Their project focuses on three main areas: adaptating original orchestral pieces, performing new arrangements of traditional works and adding new songs.

As Leda and Paula are also teachers, and understand that sharing knowledge is an integral part of being a musician and a two-way process of enrichment, they make all their arrangements and adaptations available to anyone who needs them.
