A selection from the works of Astor Piazzolla, Argentina’s iconoclastic tango musician and composer, who outraged traditional tangueros by composing music that was never intended for dancing, introducing jazz and classical elements to revolutionize the tango form.

20/09/2005 Pablo Rego, Tierra de Música

"Almost an obligatory task for today's musicians, the musical legacy left by Astor Piazzolla continues to make its presence felt in contemporary music recording. Here, Las Morochas tackle the works of this 20th-century musical icon, enriching them with their own interpretation.

Through their technical ability and commitment to the works selected for their first recording, Cecilia Zabala (guitar) and Ianina Pietrantonio (flute) make a strong claim at establishing themselves at the highest artistic levels.

Blacks and whites, euphoria and sadness, sensitivity and vigour - the musicians bring to life these many contrasting moods that are ever-present in Piazzolla's work.

Milonga sin palabras consists in part of classic works of great beauty such as Otoño e Invierno (porteños) and more moody tracks such as Revirado. At the same time, also present are what could be described as Piazzolla's 'scientific-descriptive' works, pieces that are becoming more visible these days such as Historia del tango, in which the maestro's pen describes four pivotal moments in the development of tango as a genre. The piece Milonga sin palabras is rooted in drama, here rendered deeply emotive.

Throughout the recording, Las Morochas display great sensitivity, producing a sound that is both well-nurtured and sincere, coloured by their broad experience of other musical genres, such as Argentine folk music and traditional tango."

 

01/05/2005 Oscar López Ruiz -- guitarist with Piazzolla for 25 years

"These two young women, excellent players and musicians both, had the courage to get involved with Piazzolla's music - not an easy task, despite the fact that many musicians believe the opposite. I first heard them a couple of years ago and liked them; moreover, I was amazed that their style of playing displayed such seriousness and dedication.

Since then they have grown a great deal, penetrating deeper into Piazzolla's work to search for its essence, that which can be neither seen nor written - what Astor and I liked to call the 'squalidness' that courses through the exquisite structure of incomparable harmonies, counterpoints, rhythms, tones, dynamics and melodies that make up this unique music.

Astor created a new kind of music, certainly deeply rooted in tango but 'new' by virtue of the many other influences his immense talent allowed him to introduce.

Las Morochas stride into this genre with audacity, frankness and respect. They show great daring, and they succeed. It just remains for me to ask that the challenge of tackling Astor and his work should not discourage them from going forward."
