Death and Resurrection in Tango!

"This 1983 concert recording features essentially the same group Piazzolla used on the classic "Tango: Zero Hour" album, so the classical tonalities and pathos-suffused arrangements will be familiar to fans of that work. The recording is very near studio-quality, allowing all the players to be heard equally well, although at times Fernando Suarez Paz' violin sounds too distant. As usual, Piazzolla's compositions are both intriguing and sensual; and, except for "Escualo", which is merely prototypical of his sound and therefore dull, the tunes will add to anyone's collection of his works. The concert ends particularly well with the "Angel trilogy": the milonga, the death, and the resurrection."

"If U wanna cry, there's no better thing to do than to listen to the LIVE 7+-minute-long version of Adiós Nonino recorded here.I had this CD (call me fool! I lost it... in a cab!!), & I can say, This Live version of Adiós Nonino recorded here is worth every penny (besides there are some other songs rather boring for my tastes (& I must say I am a Huge Piazzola-Fan!).Thanx 4 taking the time 4 reading this!"
Shadows of the night or memories of the tango!

The egregious importance of Astor Piazolla (died on July 5,1992) in the musical landscape is day by day regaining more and more adepts all around the world. And this fact should not surprise us at all, because he was one of the most original and remarkable musical genius of the last decades. This pride of Argentina returned the tango a sort of primordial majesty, vanished throughout decades and decades.
Piazzolla recalls us the tango is passion and tragedy, merciless winter depurating anguish and vivid memories; authentic autumnal poetry framed bellow the tapestry of the memory.
Luisa Maria Bamberg was a remarkable Argentinean filmmaker who expressed once: "The unbearable tragedy of the Argentinean resides he feels an European citizen in America, but at the same time, is regarded an American foreigner in Europe".
It's useless to understand the somber poetry nestled beneath these melodies thirsty of calm and hope whose sleepless inspiration always searches elusive roots, he is the son of immigrants who desperately left their native lands and never returned, so this genetic heritage makes the Argentinean gazes America with European lenses, loaded of a devouring blend of nostalgia and homesickness that never finds shelter.
Let these sounds convey you to unknown landscapes and unexplored horizons, due the tango is the loyal swan's song and inseparable partnership of a never-ending journey.
Sublime poetry in constant boiling point. As Borges eloquently stated: "The anguish has no nationality, it arises from the soul."
