I don't understand the hysteria about "the missing bandoneon" and what a true piece of "nuevo tango" sounds like. Piazzolla first and foremost was a composer. He didn't write tangos or music for bandoneon. He wrote M-U-S-I-C. Real, original, beautiful, exquisite MUSIC. And that's what you have on this disc. Music, stripped of accidental considerations, that glistens.
Tango Ballet features some breathtakingly beautiful pieces. The highlight of the disc is the Angel Concerto of course. A miniature masterpiece. I consider myself a very lucky person for ever having the chance of listening to it, because it is *divine*.
Gidon Kremer does not need an introduction. His performance is superb, as usual.
I've been a Piazzolla fan for almost 20 years now, I own tons of his recordings, but this CD is one of my favourites. Not to be missed.
