Piazzolla 100
Artist: Piazzolla / Rudens Turku & Friends
Format: CD

More Info:

The pieces on the present album - in instrumentations ranging from duo violin/piano to arrangements for solo instruments and orchestra - cover a broad spectrum of Piazzolla's oeuvre. Of particular importance to violinist Rudens Turku is the piece Le grand Tango, written in Paris in 1982. Originally for cello and piano, it is heard here in an arrangement for violin, cello and piano. The nearly eleven-minute work in one movement contains three interrelated sections. "To reproduce the spirit of the music and to create a sense of joy and excitement among the musicians," was the intention of arranger Alexander Krampe in this and other pieces: This intention shows itself immediately and directly.
