the passion of Piazzola's tango music with the heart of the cello

"Soul of the Tango" presents the music of Astor Piazzolla with all of the passion and excitement that one could imagine. The blending of the melancholy strains of Yo Yo Ma's cello with the spectacular instrumentation of the other players, makes the listener's heart beat in time with the senuousity of the music. The collaboration of the musicians exposes the very essence of a type of music that had previously been trivialized. This recording is as spectacular in its substance as it is in the beauty and amazing clarity of the recording. "Soul of the Tango" is a winner that should be included in every afficiandos collection."
