Robert Wolf (guitar)
Andreas Hinterseher (accordion, vibrandoneon, piano)
D.D.Lowka (acoustic bass, percussions)
Based on European formed tango, Quadro Nuevo enriches this musical direction with elements of Flamenco, Valse Musette, Balkan swing, Oriental music, daring improvisations and an incomparable Mediterranean sense of ease.
Since 1996 Quadro Nuevo has appeared in over 1500 concerts all over Europe. The four musicians’ venues are as diverse as the roots of their music: the nostalgic-acoustic ensemble not only appears in concert halls and at festivals. The fervent virtuosi also travel around the Southern Mediterranean as street musicians enticing their audience to dance as a nightly tango band.
Each of Quadro Nuevo’s CDs so far have received the German Jazz Award and climbed into the Top Ten of the Jazz and World Music charts. In the summer of 2005 the quartet released its DVD - Quadro Nuevo LIVE - and won the European
Phono Award Impala in Paris. The quartet have so far played at numerous renowned festivals, such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, the ’Internationale Jazzwoche Burghausen’, the ’Rheingau Musikfestival’, the ’Meraner Musikwochen’, ’Saalfelden Jazztage’ and the Quebec Festival.
