Notes & Reviews:

Over the last two decades, Ástor Piazzolla (1921-1992) has emerged as one of the twentieth century's most popular composers. Piazzolla revitalized and reinvented Argentina's tango, taking it from the dance floor onto the world's concert stages and transforming it into tango nuevo (`new tango`). One of the most prolific composers ever, Piazzolla wrote over 3000 works and performed extensively around the globe, collaborating with musicians ranging from jazz god Dizzy Gillespie to legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

Octavio Brunetti has been called `the inheritor of [Ástor] Piazzolla's mantle` and today's most prominent pianistic interpreter and arranger of Argentinian tango. `PIAZZOLLA -- desde ESTUDIOS a TANGOS` teams Brunetti with violinist Elmira Darvarova -- the first woman concertmaster of the MET Orchestra -- in their second CD collaboration.

Included is the world premiere recording of Piazzolla's six solo `Etudes tanguistiques` in new versions for violin accompanied by piano by Octavio Brunetti, along with his new, atmospheric and colorful arrangements of six of Piazzolla's most popular tangos.

The popularity of Piazzolla's music continues to increase with each passing year, and this new release will bring the tuneful, dramatic Etudes Tanguistiques, previously seen as `serious` virtuoso solo studies, to a far broader audience.
