DI MARINO, R.: Bandoneon Concerto / PIAZZOLLA, A.: Oblivion / 5 Tango Sensations (Chiacchiaretta, Croatian Philharmonic, Vaupotić)
The bandoneon is a type of concertina which has been an essential part of traditional tango ensembles for the past century. Award-winning Italian composer Roberto Di Marino explores the breathtakingly virtuoso and sensual qualities of this distinctive instrument in his Concerto, with its driving syncopated rhythms and melodies which tug at the heartstrings. Ástor Piazzolla singlehandedly created the ‘nuevo tango’ genre, and his haunting Oblivion is one of his most intensely expressive creations in this style. He described the FiveTango Sensations as “a musical farewell to life”.
