Mi Querido Tango
Alessandro Bruno | Toronto, Canada | 02/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful sentimental and nostalgic collection of some of the finest tangos ever written performed by three superb performers. Daniel Baremboim, the current Chicago Symphony Orchestra director was born and lived the formative years of his childhood in Buenos Aires. Having returned there many years after he left with his family when he was 9 years old, he paid tribute to the beautiful memories of childhood, and the first realizations of the world at large. What better way than to do this by performing wonderful renditions of beautiful tangos.
The tango is a very sophisticated musical form, the dane expresses its passion but the music is very rich in textures, melancholy and depth. It is by its very nature a nostalgic form, that emerged from the songs of Italian and gallego immigrants at the dawn of the 20th century around the port of Buenos Aires. Baremboim's calssical training and experience shines through his performance. But the tango's flavor is provided by the Bandoneon (an accordion like instrument) which is wonderfully played by R. Mederos and is very evocative of the sweet melancholy of past memories--Adios Nonino in particular. The collection also includes one of the finest renditions of El Dia Que Me Quieras I've ever heard. If you love the tango, listening to this CD you might find yourself wishing to be one of the musicians rather than a dancer."
The trio found the essence of Tango

"Daniel Baremboim had the happy idea to join forces with tango legends Rodolfo Mederos and Hector Console. Normally, when I buy a cd, I would simply listen to it and enjoy it, but this time I just had to let everyone know how I feel. Ranging from "Guardia Vieja" immortals such as Gardel and Troilo (Pichuco) to the genius of Ginastera to the revolutionary Astor Piazzolla, this recording captures the special air of the "callecitas de Buenos Aires", the smell of the dark bordellos of the "Puerto" where Tango music gestated. This recording, aside from being "sentimental" in Baremboim's words, is technically outstanding, and the trio combines in a master performance of some of the best tangos of great legends. It is truly remarkable. Aunque no soy argentino, me ha hecho sentirme porteño!"
