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 haunting creations in this style. He described the Five Tango Sensations as “a musical farewell to life”.
Tango music and the bandoneon are hugely popular, and Roberto Di Marino rewards our expectations with his brand new Concerto for Bandoneon and String Orchestra. This impressive work builds on the romantic idiom of Ástor Piazzolla, spectacularly extending the virtuoso boundaries of the solo instrument over exciting rhythms and heartwarming harmonies.
Coupling this with some of Piazzolla’s most evocative music is a natural choice which will add to the attraction of this release, while acclaimed soloist Cesare Chiacchiaretta is universally admired amongst fellow musicians and audiences as a widely travelled ambassador for his instrument.
