This is one of the most essential record of work
designed to be owned by the music enthusiasts who
are interested in observing the emergence of the
twentieth century music from Argentina.
Interpretations of the works of famous composers and performers like Piazzolla, Gardel, Ginastera, Resta, and Salgan are full of original colors
guiding every listener to be inspired from what
Tango is about, with melody, rhythm, sentiment,
and above all with 'a la parilla' improvisation made by a trio of selective musicians namely, Rodolfo Mederos(Bandoneon), Hector Console(Bass), led by one of the most world famous maestro and pianist Daniel Barenboim.

A set of beautiful tunes with the heart and soul of Tango. La Moza Donoza by Ginastera is one of my favourite all-time piano solos. Most tunes include piano and bandoneon.

I'm biased - I like tango anyway. But, the real appeal of this disc is the excellent playing of a top rate concert pianist, Daniel Barenboim. That he hails from Buenos Aires adds great poignancy to the interpretations. And it has lots of Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel tracks,
I have owned this CD for decades, but bought this copy to convince a friend of its qualities.
The disc, its case and the notes were in 'as new' condition, and offered the additional consumer advantage that the irritating cellophane wrapping had already been removed by the previous owner!

Mi Querido Tango 28 Feb 2002
By Alessandro Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful sentimental and nostalgic collection of some of the finest tangos ever written performed by three superb performers. Daniel Baremboim, the current Chicago Symphony Orchestra director was born and lived the formative years of his childhood in Buenos Aires. Having returned there many years after he left with his family when he was 9 years old, he paid tribute to the beautiful memories of childhood, and the first realizations of the world at large. What better way than to do this by performing wonderful renditions of beautiful tangos.
The tango is a very sophisticated musical form, the dane expresses its passion but the music is very rich in textures, melancholy and depth. It is by its very nature a nostalgic form, that emerged from the songs of Italian and gallego immigrants at the dawn of the 20th century around the port of Buenos Aires. Baremboim's calssical training and experience shines through his performance. But the tango's flavor is provided by the Bandoneon (an accordion like instrument) which is wonderfully played by R. Mederos and is very evocative of the sweet melancholy of past memories--Adios Nonino in particular. The collection also includes one of the finest renditions of El Dia Que Me Quieras I've ever heard. If you love the tango, listening to this CD you might find yourself wishing to be one of the musicians rather than a dancer.

Outstanding! 4 Mar 2002
By Feller who likes Old Yeller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album contains the most beautiful, refined, and expressive tango performances I have ever heard. Not only that, but you CAN dance to them! The accordian playing here is truly fine and sensitive. Barenboim's sense of timing and rubato is always expressive, never excessive, and seems contagious to the rest of the ensemble. I listen to this over and over again and never get tired of it. An unexpected bonus to this double bass aficionado was Contrabajedo's inclusion on this CD. Bravo! You need to buy this CD immediately.

The trio found the essence of Tango 13 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Daniel Baremboim had the happy idea to join forces with tango legends Rodolfo Mederos and Hector Console. Normally, when I buy a cd, I would simply listen to it and enjoy it, but this time I just had to let everyone know how I feel. Ranging from "Guardia Vieja" immortals such as Gardel and Troilo (Pichuco) to the genius of Ginastera to the revolutionary Astor Piazzolla, this recording captures the special air of the "callecitas de Buenos Aires", the smell of the dark bordellos of the "Puerto" where Tango music gestated. This recording, aside from being "sentimental" in Baremboim's words, is technically outstanding, and the trio combines in a master performance of some of the best tangos of great legends. It is truly remarkable. Aunque no soy argentino, me ha hecho sentirme porteño!

Tango for the world 2 Mar 2002
By Harrington S. Nejad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is music at its best: relaxing, precise, melodic, thoughtful, romantic, and entertaining all at once. You will never get tired of this album. If you enjoy the finer things in life, this is a MUST. There is not a single annoying piece in the whole album. I rate it among my favorite albums of all time. Truly timeless. Enjoy!

Mi Buenos Aires Querido is a good companion for all moods... 6 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The record "Mi Buenos Aires Querido" has become a dear companion in my house,my office,my car.It is so rare to find a record where all the songs have a strong personality.It's hard to choose the best ones.For those very delicate moments in life, the piano of Barenboim in "La Moza Donoza" is the perfect match.(How can he be so discreet and solidaire at the same time?)For challenging moments try listening the song "Don Augustin Bardi".It will give you the strenght to go on.For angry moments, "El dia que me quieras" will reconciliate you with life in the best terms.And so on. No matter your existencial mood, those three wizards will cherrish, nourrish and embrace your heart and soul.Indulge yourself to their magic.
