"What I like about Astor Piazzolla 's compositions are that they shift dynamically, rhythmically, mood-wise in a fairly illogical way that mimics the texture of everyday life (mine at least). Not rampant atonality . Like life, the compositions retain consistent voices, threads of melodies. But bet's are off about what's comin' around the corner. Piazzolla is always a first-class FEELING human as opposed to a musician's musician. Operatic in his emotional intensity.This CD has an erotically slow "Soledad", three raucous and adorable fight-songs about "La Camorra" (the quarrel). Next, a muscular fugue, "Fugata", "Sur: Los Suenos (South: The Dreams)" holding a child's nursery song? inside, and last "Regresso Al Amor (South: Regression To Love)". I enjoy YOYO Ma's version of "Regresso Al Amor" (on Yo-Yo Ma: SOUL OF THE TANGO: MUSIC OF ASTOR PIAZZOLLA) but this CD has the composer performing, making it more bittersweet (he died in '92)- more "regressive".My favorite PIAZZOLLA CD is no longer just "Tango: Zero Hour." It's a tie between Zero and La Camorra. "Zero Hour" is more ethereal; "La Cammorra" is more agitated."

"I'm stunned by two things: First, that I am the first person to review this great album and it is nearly 5 years old.

Second, that I havnt 'discovered' Piazzola sooner. Sure, I have known the name but tango has never much appealed to me before...that is until I heard this CD.

The recording is EXCELLENT the playing is EXCELLENT the music is EXCELLENT.

If you are on the fence on this one don't hesitate to jump in and get it."

"This Piazolla CD is pure Argentinian magic! The first piece on the CD is divinely beautiful. I could listen to it over and over again."
