The London Tango Trio consists of three virtuoso players and was formed when David Juritz, Craig Ogden and Miloš Milivojević began exploring the extraordinary range available in the combination of their three instruments – violin, guitar and accordion.
David Juritz was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and was awarded an Associated Board Scholarship to the Royal College of Music. He was leader of the London Mozart Players until 2010 and has directed many orchestras including the English Chamber Orchestra. As well as being in demand as a chamber music artist, David is a prolific arranger and has arranged many substantial works for a wide variety of instrumental combinations.
Craig Ogden has performed concertos with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including several world premieres of concertos written for him. He regularly appears as soloist and chamber musician at major venues and collaborates with the UK’s top artists and ensembles. One of the UK’s most recorded guitarists, he has accumulated an acclaimed discography for Chandos, Virgin/EMI, Nimbus, Hyperion, Sony and six chart-topping albums for Classic FM.
Born in Serbia, award-winning accordionist Miloš Milivojević was awarded a full scholarship from the Royal Academy of Music. Miloš has premiered many works and was recently selected by the London Symphony Orchestra to perform as part of their Jerwood Composer Showcase. In addition to his work as a chamber and solo artist, Miloš regularly works with leading opera companies including Opera North and Glyndebourne and has performed tango live in front of millions on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing TV programme.
