It’s with great sadness though that they are to lose their long-time excellent double bass player Yaron Stavi and his fiancée the wonderful violinist Corinna Hentschel as they are emigrating to Germany. The ensemble is very lucky to secure two wonderful new permanent members in the form of Nick Pini on double bass and Barbara Dziewiecka-Data on violin who will be stepping in on March 10th. The Ensemble will be playing Tangos by Piazzolla, Traditional Tangos and some new compositions form the Ensemble’s forthcoming album London Tango.
