    • James Crabb accordion
    • Graham Mitchell double bass

    For this late-night concert, Anthony Marwood is joined by accordionist James Crabb and double bass player Graham Mitchell for an evening of tango music.

    One of the world’s leading exponents of Ástor Piazzolla’s music, James Crabb has helped revitalise the accordion repertoire by commissioning new works and creating jaw-dropping arrangements of existing compositions. The three musicians highlight Piazzolla’s debt to Bach and embrace the mysterious beauty of Ravel’s Deux mélodies hébraïques.

    The evening continues in the Wigmore Hall Bar with music by the Patricia Hammond and The Versatility Serenaders from 11:15pm.
