Yo-Yo Ma might seem like an unlikely protagonist for the tango, but this intrepid musical explorer has taken his task seriously, collaborating with experienced tango musicians. Ma even participates in a posthumous collaboration with one 1987 Piazzolla recording. Furthermore, while he's obviously the headliner here, he doesn't dominate the arrangements nearly as much as he does the billing and photography of the disc. While the result isn't your essential Piazzolla album (that would have to include more of the composer's own playing), it's an atmospheric and convincing collection, perhaps a good introduction for those who don't know the music. --Leslie Gerber

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Robert W. Palmer on 1 Dec 2006
Format: Audio CD
The Yo Yo Ma perspective on Piazolla is a credible introduction to the profoundly evocative melodies of the master bandoneon player and composer but the nature of the context lacks means that these performances in some way lack the fire of the original. The difference is simply that which exists between a cello and bandoneon. The smoothness of Ma's cello is a little, and only a little, incongruent in the context of this music, which was composed for the accordian like bandoneon (a woefully inadequate description). Tango came from the street not the parlour. Ma has unwittingly sanitised the product and watered it down a little as a result.

If you like Ma's work, this is a prefectly serviceable CD but, if you wish to hear Piazolla's work at its best, find some performances by the composer himself and revel in the energy and the passion. YOu could, of course, buy both.

And not to be confused with soul music. All the character of music created with passion to dance to with equal passion.
