The Binelli-Ferman Duo and oboist Leanne Nicholls join City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong conducted by Germán Augusto Gutiérrez in this exhilarating compilation of tango arrangements by Daniel Binelli. Each work on this album holds a chapter in the evolution of the tango, from its waterfront roots in the night-time taverns of the Río de la Plata (Buenos Aires and Montevideo) to the concert halls of today. Moreover, the bandoneón, the instrument that symbolizes the tango and permeates its history, takes the spotlight. The journey begins with Ángel Villoldo’s El Choclo, the best-known tango from the early 1900s and the era known as ‘La Guardia Vieja’ (The Old Guard). Here we experience a type of habanera blended with European music. Palomita Blanca, a waltz with lyrics by Francisco Garcia Gimenez, represents the romantic phase of the 1920s and 1930s when the great poets started writing words for the tango. During this time tango became immensely fashionable in European society. We then move to the 1940s when the grandiose dance halls became a hub for the big-time tango orchestras of Aníbal Troilo, Osvaldo Pugliese, Carlos di Sarli and Juan D’Arienzo. Around this period the sound of the bandoneón became inextricably linked to tango. In the 1950s Mariano Mores introduced new instruments to the tango including organ, keyboard, drums and bass. Horacio Salgán, a classically-trained pianist, became a transitional figure between the classic tango of the 1940s and the avant-garde style. Liberated from the need to please dancers, he achieved a brilliant balance between tradition and innovation, and further established the importance of the piano in tango music. In the 1960s the great Astor Piazzolla emerged as a revolutionary force in the tango world. He blended elements of classical and jazz in his music and shocked the traditionalists with his revolutionary ‘tango nuevo’ for the concert hall. From the 1990s we have Daniel Binelli who is the torchbearer of Piazzolla. His works represent the sound of tango today. Our tango journey ends fittingly with a step backwards to 1917 in Matos Rodríguez’s La Cumparsita, a tango traditionally played as the last dance of the evening.
