A personal pilgrimage for world-renowned pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim to re-discover his home town of Buenos Aires, the magic of tango and the legend of its greatest pioneer, Carlos Gardel. Interviews and archive footage evoke the glamorous and optimistic spirit of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century, and show how tango brought material and artistic wealth to its impoverished, immigrant communities. Barenboim demonstrates tango styles and techniques, and brings the music of Gardel, Salgán, Píazzolla and Ginastera to life in performances with Rodolfo Mederos, Hector Console, and Placido Domingo.

His only lacking though, is that he cannot dance the tango!
The tango is not complete without the dance. Watch the Argentinian tango and you will find a dance of utmost passion and even more gracefull than ballet.

He took some time to come to his birthplace, Buenos Aires (although he is an Israel citizen) to have his guests in a session of tango.
With a beautiful selection of old and modern tango, including Gardel, Piazzola and Argentinean classical composer Alberto Ginastera, Mr. Baremboim in the piano with Rodolfo Mederos in the bandoneon and Hector Console in the bass, give us a delightful concert of tango, as well as comments on history, legend and the current importance of tango.
A couple of young Argentinian dancers, give us a thrilling Tango dance. It makes you want to know the different steps and sections of tango dancing (caminada, corte and figuras) and join a club to dance.
As this were not enough, Baremboim and Placido Domingo join to give us Gardel's Mi Buenos Aires Querido and Domingo plays tango in the piano.
A pleasure for all who like tango, and for those that still don't know anything about tango.
Although in one of the interviews you can hear some hiss and background noice, this doesn't dimishes the beauty of this Tango homage.
An exciting video. Don't miss it!
The sound level is abnormally low so I have to pump up the volume, almost double the level I use for other DVD.
When I do it there is this low sound that comes from the equipment and makes the whole experience painful.
There is no way to choose the type of sound reproduction you want - regular stereo sound or 5+1. And this DVD was manufactured recently.
You pay $17.99 for a 50 minute documentary. There is nothing else on the DVD. Not a single extra.
The music is altogether a different thing, it is magnificent.
My recommendation to anyone is to avoid this very poor edition.
