Royal Tango

“Tango Royal”

I love the Tango as a dance, and I like Tango music. In my next life I will learn to do the Tango as a younger man; I will also study the Cello and the Viola.

“Tango Royal” is a selection of Tangos by Piazzolla and others, as arranged for bandoneon player Carel Kraayenhof and his own sextet (Sexteto Canyengue), together with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra and the Netherlands Chamber Choir.

The selections are as follows:

  • Maypa


  • Clavel rojo
  • Máxima
  • Milonga para Thirza

Do you remember the movie “Scent of a woman”? You can see one great scene from it now:

The Tango – Scent of a Woman – Movie  (1992)


And now here is the Bandoneon Tango “Adios Nonino” by Astor Piazzolla

Lastly,  here is “Solitude” performed by Carel Kraayenhof and Juan Pablo Dobal
