Description:
There is something magical about tango. May be it is the pulsating rhythm, set against either a lyrical, rich and simple melody, or its percussive rhythmic phrases. Tango is a unique form of dance music, which has captured the hearts of people from all over the world, in a way, which no other music has done. The accordion has become almost synonymous with the tango, from its beginnings in its dance form, to its development through to the modern tango.

On this recording, I hope to bring together a taste of everything. Especially in my homeland of Australia, the tango is yet establising its popularity in its more serious form. Therefore, I hope that this will be a great introduction to those, who have yet to discover the wonder of that great Argentinian composer, Astor Piazzolla, or tango in its more pure and innocent form. The music of Astor Pazzolla is very satisfying to play, with its intensely complex rhythms and harmonies. On the other hand, there are some very beautiful tangos, no less satisfying for their simplicity - in fact, that is their wonder.

I'm sure you will find tango is an infection from which you won't want a cure!

The Tango was first developed in Buenos Aires in Argentina and/or Montevideo, Uruguay in the 19th century. It first appeared in the slum areas where newly arrived Spaniards, Italians, Jews, and Eastern Europeans were interspersed with the local displaced country folk and African dockworkers. The European traditions were mixed with the local folk music and African beat to form the early styles of Tango. From this early primitive beginning it has spread throughout the world, and is now witnessed everywhere from Tango Bars to Ballroom Dancing.

In the 21st century, the tango has reached the stage where it has become a culture of it's own. It is performed by many classical musicians in concert, yet it is also heard in traditional popular music venues. Originally it was performed by violin, guitar and flute, but the bandoneon and/or accordion have taken the leading role in tango music from the late 19th century, and no tango is now complete without either accordion or bandoneon.

Astor Piazzolla, an Argentinian by birth who studied classically in Paris, is credited with developing the sounds and rythms of the Tango Neuvo. In more recent times, Tango Milonga, which is strictly instrumental, has given away to Tango Neuvo, a more classical form developed by Astor Piazzolla, himself a lover of both classical and tango music.
