Pagina de Buenos Aires

Pagina de Buenos Aires

by Fernando Otero
A heroically ambitious tango record, with a scope that reaches beyond the usual connotations of the style.

Editorial Reviews

Every so often a disc arrives that evokes the vibrancy of a specific geographical region so elegantly that it immediately inspires listeners to visit that particular place. Fernando Otero's magnificent Pagina de Buenos Aires is one of those records.
BBC Online
This album feels like page one of a very exciting book for Otero.
Audiophile Audition - John Sunier
[Otero's] music clearly has its roots in tango, but goes beyond that with even more abandon than did the music of Astor Piazzolla.... Truly a fascinating twist on the tango. I’m sure we’ll be hearing lots more from Otero.
The Guardian
Though Otero sounds as if he is doing his utmost to avoid writing a tango, he can't help infusing his music with the complex soul of Argentina's most famous musical export.
Newsday - Ed Morales
Otero...plays with tango in a thoroughly original way. What might sound like Astor Piazzolla at first becomes frenetic soundtrack material in the vein of Looney Tunes composer Carl Stalling, or spare, abstract meditations.
