Product Description

The name Astor Piazzolla may be forever linked with the tango, but the master composer/artist had another side that is finally revealed on this brand new release: chamber music. Written primarily in the 1940's, before Piazzolla developed New Tango, these pieces demonstrate his flair for serious classical composition. The influences of Alberto Ginastera (his Argentine teacher), Bartok and Hindemith clearly steered the impressionable Piazzolla in a different direction. In addition, several tango-flavored chamber pieces, composed in the 1960's and 1970's, complement this unique collection. Most of the works on The Unknown Piazzolla have never before been recorded. The album features noted pianist Allison Brewster Franzetti, violinist Hector Falcon, violist Nardo Poy and cellist Eugene Moye. An accomplished international artist, Ms. Franzetti has performed with groups like The Denver Symphony and Orquestra Filarmonica de Buenos Aires, as well as with Eugenia Zuckerman, Robert White, Sir Charles Grove and James Galway. The Unknown Piazzolla was recorded in 96-kHz/24-bit stereo using minimalist miking techniques.
