"The Bandoneón Concerto may not be quite the sum of its parts but still contains much of genuine beauty and Pablo Mainetti's account still holds its own against later competitors. The Tres movimientos tanguísticos are even more impressive, a tango suite of real quality that is wholly convincing." - Gramophone (CD of the Month, November 1996)

"This collection provides a superb introduction to Piazzolla’s world – the Concerto for Bandonéon (a grown-up concertina) has neo-classical overtones, though the pungent harmonies are utterly his own, the Tres movimientos insinuate the dance rhythms into dark, threatening orchestral studies, while the five ‘straight’ tangos have a rhythmic flexibility and spontaneity that are totally compelling. It’s wonderful, unique stuff." - Andrew Clements, Classicalmusic.com
