Argentine tango orchestra

The predecessor of the orchestra was founded in 1998 with the leadership of Katalin Bartha. Enchanted by the music of Argentinean Astor Piazzolla the orchestra began to build their repertoire cooperating with Eero Kesti finnish composer. Therefore Tango Harmony has been invited to play at several concerts and shows. They play Piazzolla’s music as well as traditional tangos, valses, milongas and music composed by the group’s pianist György Lázár.
