Notes & Reviews:

More than any other composer since JS Bach, Astor Piazzolla achieved the ultimate synthesis of the musical influences acting upon him - from Bach to jazz to classical music of his contemporaries - while remaining true to his Argentine roots. In this dazzling program, London Concertante goes "beyond" Piazzolla classics and introduces four newly written works by David Gordon and Adam Summerhayes that pay homage to the master.

bbc.co.uk - Charlotte Gardner
London Concertante demonstrates extraordinary versatility for a classical ensemble...Their skill is summed up in Michelangelo 70, a dramatic performance of feather-light virtuosity that is so tightly together that it would feel inhuman if there weren't so much soul in the playing. Bravo.
