5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful contemporary composition and musicianship, 12 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Tango-Zero Hour (Audio CD)
Astor Piazzolla's music is the apotheosis of the tango as the toughest and most tender of all dance musics. It is the embodiment of Shostakovich's take on (jewish) folk music as expressing laughter through tears and despair through dance. Tango, tragedia, comedia, kilombo (whorehouse). Those four words that are repeated in the opening "tanguedia III" remain relevant for the album's duration... and yet, "tango zero hour" is so much more; it is the final touch of the ineffable that defines all great music and makes it accessible to all. With that in mind, it seems appropriate to cut this review short with one final encouragement to pick up this album as a wonderful example of contemporary composition and musicianship.
