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.

Review By Andrew Mellor,Classic FM,February 2011

Life in Buenos Aires is rather more relaxed than in Venice, and there performances reflect it. Soloist Tianwa Yang gets things going with a delicious violin sound and liquidly elastic lyricism thereafter. At their best the Nashville strings sound like firmly packed cigars: hot, smokey and impeccably shaped.



Review By Brian Wilson - Download Roundup,MusicWeb International,February 2011

I can’t put it better than Bob Briggs: ‘The performances are very good, and idiomatic. Binelli is a fine player and has the spirit of Piazzolla in his playing, Tianwa Yang has exactly the right swing, and delivers a splendid performance of this very attractive music. The Nashville Symphony under Giancarlo Guerrero play to the manner born. The recording is very good, as one expects from Naxos, and the notes, though short, are worthwhile. This is a very exciting issue and would grace any record shelf. It will please all Piazzolla lovers, and bring many more into the fold.’ – see full review. The download is very good and comes with the notes to which

Some time ago I recommended a South American recording of Piazzolla, but that’s hard to obtain in the UK; these North Americans play just as well
