Notes & Reviews:

This exciting release was recorded live in the Mozartsaal of the Konzerthaus in Vienna. The repertoire is not entirely what might by expected from the Alban Berg Quartet; a Latin flavor predominates with Per Arne Glorvigen playing the bandoneon in pieces by Piazzolla and Schwertsik. There are also four solo pieces for bandoneon by Arolas, Cobian, and de Caro.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Per Arne Glorvigen (bandoneon).

Recording information: Mozart Hall, Vienna, Austria (2003).
