Repertoire



La Luna's repertoire covers a century of tango, from the early sounds of the Guardia Vieja and the lyricism of the revered master Pugliese to the modern Tango Nuevo , exemplified in the unrelenting sensuality of Piazzolla's famous "Libertango" and La Luna's own compositions. Always popular are the ensemble's interpretations of the "lounge tango" music of the Gotan Project. To this mix La Luna adds its own elements of jazz and improvisation. In 2012 La Luna introduces well known singer Jennine Bailey in a number of vocal tangos.



Some of the favourite titles are El Choclo,  La Yumba and the waltz Desde el Alma;  the beautiful Astor Piazzolla ballad Oblivion;   Paris, Texas - one of Gotan Project's best known recordings - and of course La Cumparsita, the most famous of all tangos.



Arrangements

The arrangements by Wytze Hoekstra capture the nuances of each instrument: the warm melancholy of the cello and the tango spirit of the bandoneon; the dark and delicate timbres of Sophie's viola playing; the expressive and often virtuoso lines of Mark's clarinet melodies; the vibrant flair of Ana's piano textures and the rich sound and strong drive of Gerald's double bass.
