Notes & Reviews:

Astor Piazzolla established a standard and signature structural pattern for his tangos with the composition of Adios Nonino in 1959, involving a formal pattern of fast-slow-fast-slow-coda, with the fast sections emphasizing gritty tango rhythms and harsh, angular melodic figures, and the slower sections usually making use of the string instrument in the group and/or Piazzolla's own bandoneon as lyrical soloists. This release offers wonderful and stirring new transcriptions of Piazzolla's works by the late Octavio Brunetti, in which the two instruments- violin and piano- introduce new and vibrant interpretations of several of Piazzolla's major tango compositions. A legendary tango pianist, interpreter, arranger, and conductor in his own right, Octavio Brunetti understood Piazzolla's musical passion for tango better than anyone else. The New York Philharmonic named Octavio Brunetti "inheritor of Piazzolla's mantle" in their program brochure on the occasion of commissioning Brunetti to arrange Piazzolla's music for YoYo Ma. This release is dedicated to Brunetti for his years of interpreting and performing Piazzolla's works, as well as his partnership with Grammy-nominated violinist Elmira Darvarova. With this release, they bring to the public their passion for the tango.
