Tango is the product of people drawn together on the margins of Buenos Aires in the late nineteenth century. From the slum districts on the outskirts of the capital to the ports, the music of the people merged – Andalusian Flamenco, southern Italian melodies, Cuban habanera, African candomblé percussion and milonga.

Alexander Sevastian, the four-time first prize winner of international accordion competitions, offers here a virtuosic version of some of the great tangos by Piazzolla and other famous composers. Emotion and first class virtuosity!

Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) was a pioneer of “tango nuevo” or “new tango”. He was the first tango composer whose music made the giant leap from dance clubs and cabarets to world-class stages. Franck Angelis, who is very well known in accordion circles, has made a wonderful composition based on Piazzolla’s tango Chiquilín de Bachín (A Little Boy from Bachin). This piece has numerous dramatic cadenzas, virtuosic variations and a gorgeous melody.
