ABOUT CAROLINE PEARSALL & GUILLERMO WILLIS

Caroline was born in Southampton, England, to musical parents.

She studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire with Philippe Graffin, Peter Thomas (CBSO), David Angel (Maggini Quartet) and Rohan de Sarum (Arditti Quartet). Her curiosity and fascination with new timbres and techniques on the violin led her to working with the contemporary music groups Ensemble Multilaterale, Ensemble Alma Viva (with guitarist Pablo Marquez) and Ars Nova.

Having studied with Juan José Mosalini at the Conservatoire of Gennevilliers and Gustavo Beytelmann at Codarts in Rotterdam after winning a Leverhulme Trust Scholarship, Caroline has developed professionally in the Argentinean tango milieu since 2003. She has performed with numerous groups including Daniel Melingo, the Grand Orchestra of Juan José Mosalini, Quinteto El Despues, Tango Orquesta Imperial, La Chicana, Linea Tigre, Amelitar Baltar, Les Fleurs Noires, and Orquesta Silbando. With these different formations she has been on tour in over 20 countries.


In 2006 she won a bursary from the Stephen Arlen Memorial Award to go to Buenos Aires to take lessons with famous tango violinists like Pablo Agri, Ramiro Gallo, Leonardo Ferreira and Mauricio Marcelli.

In 2009 she founded the London Tango Orchestra, the first traditional orquesta tipica in the UK, with whom she took part in a BBC documentary 2012, appeared in Mr Selfridge II (ITV) and performed at the South Bank Centre, Kings Place and Royal Albert Hall Ignite Series.

She received a Masters in Ethnomusicology (contemporary tango music) from the Royal Holloway University of London in 2011. In the summer of 2014 she won a Winston Churchill Fellowship to go to Argentina for 2 months to interview tango violinists (Fernando Suarez Paz, Pablo Agri, Leonardo Ferreyra…) doing research for a book.

She also performed with the Orquesta Escuela in the Usina del Arte for the Buenos Aires Tango Festival 2014.

She loves teaching and has given tango music workshops in Holland, France and the UK.

Buenos Aires-born bandoneonist, Guillermo Willis approached Tango since childhood through the recordings of Aníbal Troilo, Astor Piazzolla, and Rodolfo Mederos. For the last ten years, he studied the insights of the bandoneon with Néstor Marconi and Rodolfo Daluisio, achieving a degree in 2012 at the Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel de Falla of Buenos Aires.

Recently moved to London, over the past years Guillermo had been playing as a soloist and, from 2013 to 2016, as the lead bandoneonist of the quintet TrasCartón Tango, In September 2016 he published with TrasCartón Tango their second studio recording, ‘Paisaje Codificado’, playing newly composed pieces while respecting the classical tradition of Tango’s past generations. Simultaneously, he took part of Julián Peralta’s typical orchestra ensambles at the Orlando Goñi School, taking advantage of the opportunity to engage with the young and upcoming Tango musicians.
