Authors portrait

Born in 1975, Chris Gall studied at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, which has had such luminaries as Diana Krall, Keith Jarrett and Al Di Meola among its students. He has given concerts around the world and has appeared with his trio at renowned festivals such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, the JazzBaltica and the Jazzopen in Stuttgart. Stylistically rooted in jazz, he has always had an affinity for the music of Latin America. Together with Quadro Nuevo he travelled to Buenos Aires and immersed himself in the world of the tango.

Quadro Nuevo is Europe’s answer to the Argentine tango. Arabesques, Balkan swing, ballads, daredevil improvisations, the melodies of old Europe and the lightness of the Mediterranean merge into fabulous songs full of joyous colour. These melodies tell of the vagabond life, of experiences and encounters on this great journey of life, of small coincidences and grand moments, of tenderness and wild temperament driven between the winds of east and west, caught between consuming yearning and joyful fulfillment – between the bitter and the sweet. Quadro Nuevo has been touring the globe since 1996 giving over 3000 concerts in places as far flung as Sidney, Montreal, Ottawa, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, New York, New Orleans, Mexico City, Peking, Seoul, Singapore, Tunis and Tel Aviv. From the tranquility of Upper Bavaria, the road has led them over the Alps to Porto, traversing Europe from Denmark to the Balkans and to the Ukraine. In the course of their travels, the quartet has established its own form of melodic poetry beyond all genre pigeon holes, unmistakably shaped by the passionate love of their instruments and the joy of making music. The secret is their devotion: it is a rare experience to hear music performed with so much excitement, verve and an empathy with cultures that are foreign. The Quartet’s venues are as diverse as the roots of their music and are not limited to concert halls and festivals. Quadro Nuevo’s ardent virtuosi are just as much at home busking on the piazzas of southern Europe, enticing audiences to dance to their music as a night-time tango band, as they are in jazz clubs and locations as famous as New York’s Carnegie Hall.

Quadro Nuevo’s CD’s have received the German Jazz Award, climbed into the Top Ten of the Jazz and World Music charts and were awarded the coveted European Phono Award in Paris.

The Echo, the German Phono Academy’s highest distinction, was presented to Quadro Nuevo in the category “Jazz/World Music, Best Live Act” in both 2010 and 2011.

After an exciting and eventful trip to Buenos in early 2014, Quadro Neuvo have once again turned their intense focus back to the Tango.
