"Tango: a dance from the heart - Tango is a man and a woman in the search for each other, in the search for an embrace, a way of being together."

"The tango comes from inland areas and the coast, from seaman's shanties. It comes from the African slaves and the Andalucian Gypsies. It has incorporated the guitar from Spain, the accordion from Germany, and the mandolin and the aria from Italy.

Tango has always been performed with a variety of ensembles throughout its history, and I have thus in the course of the years commissioned arrangements for strings only ? either solo violin and string section, or for chamber orchestra.

There have been quite a few tangos through the years, so I thought it might be time to record them in order to preserve the soul and rhythm of the tango for string ensembles only. The tango can be intense, sentimental, sensual and passionate, as well as aggressive, rough and aching: both complex and simple at the same time." - Atle Sponberg
