Adios Nonino [2007]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
While it is universally acknowledged that composer and bandoneon master Astor Piazzolla revolutionized tango music in his native Argentina by making it a form of modern classical music, what it also unfortunately true is that he has been badly represented on recordings -- especially after his death. The sheer number of compilations is staggering; and, to be honest, none of them are definitively representative of the progression of his work, from his beginnings in composing short works that still evoked the dance to the sprawling later works that became dances themselves.

While it is universally acknowledged that composer and bandoneon master Astor Piazzolla revolutionized tango music in his native Argentina by making it a form of modern classical music, what it also unfortunately true is that he has been badly represented on recordings -- especially after his death. The sheer number of compilations is staggering; and, to be honest, none of them are definitively representative of the progression of his work, from his beginnings in composing short works that still evoked the dance to the sprawling later works that became dances themselves. This set is better than most in that it combines one disc of studio recordings cut between 1974 and 1984, and a disc of live suites recorded a in the latter part of his life when his New Tango Quintet was at the peak of its power as a performing unit. Disc one includes such classic tracks as the original version of "Libertango" and " Tristeza de un Doble 'A'," and the utterly beautiful "Jorge Adios," along with ten others. Disc two contains his "Suite del Angel" which includes the stunning "Milonga del Angel"; his "Suite Remembrance," and the "Quatro Stagioni." None of the American Clavé material is here -- meaning nothing from the American Clavé albums Tango: Zero Hour or Rough Dancer & the Cyclical Night, but this is still a nice collection and should be purchased by anyone seeking an authoritative introduction to the range of Piazzola's tango music.
