"Viveza is a chamber ensemble that really knows its stuff. Its members never seem to have problems with intonation or with timing, and they all feel the music together, so that the listener is treated to some pretty high standards of music-making. Tango Tango is its release devoted to the group's favorite dance. 'Devoted' is the right word, because the ensemble really does love this music. It has a respect for the music that means everyone pays attention to the coloring and emotion of each piece, but they don't let that get in the way of their enjoyment of playing the music. The mix of works, from Gade to Piazzolla, not only samples the variety of forms and styles of tango, but also shows how composers such as Stravinsky put their unique spin on it.

"The program starts with the familiar: Gade's Jalousie and Albéniz's Tango in D, two European stylizations or refinements of the common dance. Both are played with just a bit of élan and drama, but not too much. The Albéniz has a naturally gentle charm, and the same can be said of Viveza's arrangements of Stalman's Viejas Ideas and Grothe's Schreib mir einen Brief! When the group gets into the tangos written after the 1930s, its members play more freely and with more verve, particularly in A Evaristo Carriego and the Piazzolla tangos and generally wherever they can let go with showy technique. As a whole, the album isn't as fiery or recklessly passionate as to carry the listener away completely, but it is plenty infectious regardless. And the very close and rich sound makes it feel as if the listener is being treated to his/her own private performance by a top-notch dance ensemble." — All Music Guide
