Notes & Reviews:

Augustin Hadelich has become one of the most respected and admired violinists of his generation. Two critically acclaimed and Billboard Classical chart-topping releases for AVIE, as well as a string of major debuts with the likes of the New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony, have resulted in major media coverage in the New Yorker, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Philadelphia Inquirer as well as an ever-widening and adoring fan base. On Histoire du Tango, Augustin conjures a dark and sultry night of fiery, hot-blooded dancing alongside award-winning Spanish guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas.

New York Times
An exacting focus; an unerring dramatic sense; and a rich, beautiful tone.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The title comes from the Piazzolla piece. I have heard Augustin Hadelich before and know him from his winning the Gold Medal at the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Pablo Sainz Villegas is new to me. He is a Spanish guitarist who won the Gold Medal at the Parkening International Guitar Competition in 2006. So they both won gold medals in 2006. Some of the works assembled here were originally composed for violin and guitar, like the Sonata Concertata and Cantabile by Paganini. The Histoire du Tango was originally written in 1986 for flute and guitar. The other works were written or arranged for violin and piano. Avie has done a very fine job of recording them. I would have liked this more.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
Hadelich's refinement and excitement carry one through these very diverse works.
