Inspired by a general love of the tango, and more specifically the tango of Astor Piazzolla, on the part of Yo-Yo Ma, the Soul of the Tango album is a masterful work of the nuevo tango, played by Ma's cello and many of Piazzolla's former associates. Piazzolla's old guitarists Sergio and Odair Assad even showed up to work on a pair of tracks arranged by Sergio: the Tango Suite (consisting of Andante and Allegro). The sheer beauty of one of Piazzolla's tangos is generally enough to warrant the purchase of an album involving them. An album such as this one, where all of the songs (save one: Tango Remembrances, where Ma plays along with outtakes from Piazzolla's recording of The Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night album) are compositions by Piazzolla is even better. Add to this the masterful playing of Ma, and the surprising facility in which the cello fits into the tango, and you've got what could become a classic album, if only it weren't on the classical label from Sony.

Astor Piazzolla's cerebral yet lusty take on tango was probably a direct result of his family having moved from Argentina to New York when he was only three years old. While he was growing up in Little Italy, his father presented him with a second-hand bandoneon (a type of squeezebox), which he mastered in record time...

The highlight of the Chandos disc is a real rarity, the 1953 Sinfonietta written as a fruit of Piazzolla’s studies with Ginastera prior to his trip to Nadia Boulanger in Paris. Vigorously rhythmic (as one might expect), the three spans are dramatic, sober and jubilant by turns, even if the melodies do lack the distinctive Piazzolla sound. It’s a well-constructed work, though, and Gabriel Castagna’s account is full of verve.

Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Front cover

Composer and accordionist, Daniel Mille is a true sculptor of oneiric landscapes. His lunar chant and his way of slowing down the tempo brings it to undiscovered heavens. After nine splendid albums, many awards, prestigious and productive collaborations, Daniel Mille pays tribute to another composer (and a bandeon player): Astor Piazzolla. "Cierra tu Ojos" stands out first because of the instrumentarium: accordion here is surrounded by three cellos and a double bass. Expect a super acoustic (though slightly amplified) concert where jazz, classical music and world sounds melt together.

In the five pieces written in 1980, Piazzolla recreates the different styles of tango in its evolution through time, reminding us of its origins in the "milonga", which, in combination with the "habanera" and "tango andaluz", constitute the creole tango.

It's not hyperbole to say that Astor Piazzolla is the single most important figure in the history of tango, a towering giant whose shadow looms large over everything that preceded and followed him. Piazzolla's place in Argentina's greatest cultural export is roughly equivalent to that of Duke Ellington in jazz the genius composer who took an earthy, sensual, even disreputable folk music and elevated it into a sophisticated form of high art. But even more than Ellington, Piazzolla was also a virtuosic performer with a near-unparalleled mastery of his chosen instrument, the bandoneon, a large button accordion noted for its unwieldy size and difficult fingering system.
