In the year of the 25th anniversary of Piazzolla's death, Argentinean-born violinist Tomás Cotik and Chinese- American pianist Tao Lin follow their critically acclaimed Tango Nuevo with more of Piazzollas richest and most exciting compositions. These fresh adaptations for mostly two or three musicians preserve and celebrate the Nuevo tango masters legacy.
Would love to hear what they thought top executives of the Arion label, they decided to start posting Andean folk music in this case "The Calchakís."

This release from Urania Records features one of the last concerts of Luis Bacalov, wherein the great artist recalls his homeland and some of his own works alongside works of great composers like Astor Piazzolla and Isaac Albeniz in a personal journey which is moving and evocative. Argentine-born Italian composer and pianist Luis Bacalov first became famous for the film scores that he composed for Spaghetti Western films. He was nominated twice for the Academy Award for Original Score, winning it in 1996 for Il Postino. He also composed widely for chorus and orchestra, and served as artistic director of the Orchestra della Magna Grecia in Taranto, Italy. He was also considered a brilliant pianist, widely regarded among his peers for his virtuosic technique.
"Nauka Charitram aka The Boat Performance" was the first ever Opera kind of composition set in Carnatic Classical music written by Saint Thyagaraja in 18th century. IMO, It's very difficult to explain this kind of music. So, I would advice you to go through the scans that I included to read the superb sleeve notes written by Christian Ledoux. 'Trichur Ramchandran', One of the greatest legends of Carnatic Classical music has performed this auspicious performance along with his wife 'Charumathi Ramachandran' and many revered Carnatic Musicians were superbly accompanied in this rare piece of Carnatic Opera. Heartily Recommended.
