A wonderful disc of some of the best duo playing (guitar or otherwise) that one could wish to hear.
Apart from the central Tango Suite, all the works here have been arranged by the Katona Twins. Most feature the Carducci String Quartet & Daniel Storer on double-bass but there is also a guest appearance by Alfredo Marcucci on the bandone?n. All protagonists play with a real vigour & passion that makes one convinced that all the pieces were written for the duo (& friends).
Whilst this music does not have the sophistication of say a Mozart sonata, it is far removed from the transient, disposable world of what is dubbed “pop culture”. Much of the music is very enjoyable & memorable indeed & has an poignantly anguished element that is unusual in “lighter” fare. Having visited Buenos Aires, it is remarkable how adeptly that Piazzola captures the sole of the city & perhaps more remarkable how well these Hungarian guitarists & British string players (Marcucci is of course a native of Buenos Aires) reflect the style of playing of the tango in this great metropolis. It is all to easy to find oneself tapping along (crudely!) to the seductive rhythms…The engineering from Channel Classics is absolutely 1st-rate. The scale is absolutely perfect & one can imagine reaching out & handing the players refreshments in the hope that the recital would continue some more – sadly, one is bought back to reality after nearly an hour of pure escapist bliss. Highly enjoyable & recommended enthusiastically.
