Synopsis

Amazon.com
Carter Brey, who recently tied himself down to the position of principal cellist of the New York Philharmonic, has put together a most entertaining collection of Latin American music (including some excerpts from Milhaud's Saudades do Brasil). The most substantial pieces are Ginastera's Pampeana No. 2 and Cello Sonata, both wonderful. But they don't overshadow some excellent arrangements of Piazzolla tangos, which are fine music too. With prize-winning pianist Christopher O'Riley, Brey turns in scintillating performances of all this music, giving us a collection that is as stimulating as it is entertaining. The recording is fine, the price reasonable. --Leslie Gerber

A classic version of Piazzolla's Le Grand Tango
06/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Piazzolla's Le Grand Tango, which gives its name to the album, was one of his masterpieces. It has now been recorded more than half a dozen times. Easily the best are the Brey-O'Riley version heard on this record, and the performance recorded by Rostropovich (to whom the work was dedicated). Carter Brey and Christoper O'Riley really capture the essence of this piece. A superb performance."
Putting piazzolla in context
Chris Glass | Camden, ME USA | 07/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellently conceived and performed collection. What makes it especially relevant is that with the current fashion for Piazzolla's work it is often easy to overlook the other composers working in the same genre. Putting Milhaud, Ginastera, and Ponce with him shows both his classical roots and his vernacular idiom."
