Glotzer//Zobel Tango formed as a space to unpack and explore traditional tango classics. To mirror the spontaneity and liveliness of the dance and form a living conversation with dancers and listeners alike.

Harlan Glotzer – Bandoneón

Upon first hearing, Harlan has been enraptured with the music of tango. Its ability to drive a hundred couples across a dance floor inspired Harlan to bring those sounds alive.

Harlan graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2007 with a Bachelor of Music in Classical Composition. He has composed music for concert, performance, and film. His passions for music extend to organology and the instrument as a key to unlocking the varied acoustic sound paletts available to musicians. To that end Harlan tunes, repairs, and maintains harpsichords and pianos in the greater Seattle area, as well as designing, developing, and building instruments.
