Synopsis

Product Description
Irish violinist Fionnuala Hunt combines her own thorough research with extensive performance experience as she embarks on a musical journey through the history of the tango -- from its origins in the bordellos of Buenos Aires to ''respectable'' society to the jazz- and pop-inspired, contemporary tangos of today -- in her new recording for Avie, Tangos and Dances. A bonus DVD is included, featuring Fionnuala Hunt in an insightful, in-depth conversation about the Tangos and Dances recording project with the BBC's Sean Rafferty.
 

CD Reviews

Passionate and expressive
Richard Handley | 08/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fionnaula Hunt is the most sensitive and expressive violinist and arranger I've ever heard. If you love the passion of the tango, she records it beautifully. Her arrangements are enchanting."
