The classic tango group is the accordion-led quintet. The Gran Quinteto Real plays a polished but really excellent version of classic tango, less adventurous but also less pretentious than a lot of the nuevo variety. To add to the pleasure, all but two of the titles are rarely played (at least in recordings that get to the U.S.), even though they are classics of the genre.
