After sold-out concerts in Europe last month, the acclaimed QUINTETO DEL FUEGO is coming to the United States in January 2017, for a tour in three states: New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, presented by the NEW YORK CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL (

Quinteto del Fuego consists of five internationally renowned artists, whose artistic accomplishments place each one of them among the very best of their generation. Stéphane Chapuis (bandoneon), Elmira Darvarova (violin), Lionel Monnet (piano), Irina-Kalina Goudeva (double bass) and George Vassilev (guitar) are fantastic virtuosos of their instruments who bring exquisite musicianship, refined taste and sublime perfection to their mesmerizing charismatic interpretations.

The triumphal success of their concerts in Europe has solidified the reputation of Quinteto del Fuego as one of the very rare formations which cherish every note of the musical conversation connecting and binding them to the extreme core of the composers they champion.
Their unrestrained passion for Piazzolla’s music, coupled with their unerring instincts and deeply-felt affinity for the composer’s intentions, allow them to intertwine their individual vision with the unique original idea of the composer, resulting in unprecedentedly high-voltage performances and electrifying interpretative achievements.
Upcoming in Spring of 2017 is their debut CD recording of masterpieces by Piazzolla on Affetto/Naxos.
