Notes & Reviews:
This set is a journey to the heart of the Tango and also the occasion to be convinced, if need be, of the importance of this music and of the full singularity of a language that crosses styles and strikes a profound chord in us. In fact, this set constitutes a quadruple portrait of the Tango, bringing together four recordings from the Outhere Music catalogue, made by four different ensembles: the Caliente Quartet, the Ensemble Contraste, the Ensemble Astoria and the duo formed by cellist François Salque and accordionist Vincent Peirani. This low-priced set also traces the evolution of this language, from Piazzolla to Beytelmann, including the byways taken by the Salque Peirani duo. A whole history... and quite a story!
