As many of you will know I did a compositional detour some years ago and spent a bit of time writing some pieces that can best be described as ‘concert tangos’. These continue to get played and recorded, and there’s a fantastic new CD out by the German quintet, Faux Pas. This includes ‘Milonga Azure’ (the sixth time it’s been recorded) in a version that’s back to the original instrumentation.
Faux Pas have been playing this piece for a long time now, and it shows in the recording, which is stunning from start to finish. It’s always such a pleasure when players find fresh nuances in the music. I’d very much recommend the CD for anyone into tango! Check it out here;
