Astor Piazzolla’s name has become synonymous with tango, the signature dance of his native country, Argentina.

In the Sinfonía Buenos Aires, Piazzolla’s development of symphonic tango is notable for brilliant, original and often complex orchestration.

His Bandoneón Concerto, nicknamed ‘Aconcagua’ after the highest Andean mountain, provides the soloist with ample opportunities for drama, pathos and virtuosity.

Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires), a series of single tango movements with several references to Vivaldi’s famous work, is a vivid sequence in which the changing moods of the seasons are expressed by means of an almost limitless emotional range and depth.

The Guardian

“The opening work on this disc provides a rare glimpse into the musical world of the young Piazzolla: the Sinfonia Buenos Aires, from 1951, was the last in a series of orchestral pieces that had followed his years of study with Alberto Ginastera in the Argentine capital.”

Classic FM Magazine

February 2011


“The arrangement played on this new recording...accentuates Piazzolla's admiration for Vivaldi more than most: classical-style scoring notably devolves into Concerto Grosso textures in Spring as instruments peel away in solo excursions...they show Piazzolla a musical communicator of Vivaldian originality and individuality, who like his predecessor pushed instruments to their limits”
