SENSATIONS music of Astor Piazzolla
“The Argentinean tango tradition is celebrated today all over the world. Astor Piazzolla, the brilliant and revolutionary musician and composer created music that effectively erases the borders between classical, tangos and jazz and opens up a whole new style of music.” – Geir Draugsvoll
Celebrate with Delos this unique new recording featuring the music of Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla, king of the Tango, also had a classical background, studying composition with Nadia Boulanger and Alberto Ginastera. What fascinates both the listener and performer is riding the wave of these different styles with the melancholy and power hidden within Piazzolla’s music. Geir Draugsvoll has premiered a large number of works for the bayan. An accomplished accordion and bayan performer, he has toured extensively in Europe, Asia and the United States. He has released several recordings. Eminent cellist David Geringas has performed in tandem with Vladimir Ashkenazy, Simon Rattle and Charles Dutoit to name a few. He has recorded more than 40 compact discs and has received many prestigious awards.
