Recorded in Buenos Aires, May 2007
Rodolfo Mederos is a bandoneonist, a composer with an enormous oeuvre, one of the authorities on the tango – and an inspiration to new generations of musicians. The artist thrives on his city, floating above Buenos Aires like an angel, his playing captures the essence of a gigantic metropolis that never sleeps and only finds moments of rest in Rodolfo’s music. His tunes are an inseparable part of the city and reflect its modernism and intensity.
Mederos is a child of the modern age, yet constantly aware of his roots. Hundreds of tourists come to Buenos Aires to explore the tango – a genre that has long spread all over the world. Rodolfo is now 65 and at the prime of his career. His struggle for the tango – the lonely campaign of a man and his bandoneon – continues. The future remains uncertain; the only road open is straight ahead. The audience – today’s and tomorrow’s – is already waiting.
