The Tango Argentino becomes a synonym for the melancholy of the European emigrant in Buenos Aires - expressing the feelings of those uprooted from the old world who had not yet found a place in the new. The musicians of the Piazzolla Klassik Ensemble, being of Russian origin while playing as soloists and members of international orchestras, find themselves in a similar emotional situation. The performers' empathy with the melancholy, dolor and ardor is evident - allowing us to visualize how much Piazzolla's compositions reflect the feelings and the passions of the Russian soul. Impressive, also, is the emotional catharsis of the tango's pain and sadness in the successful bridge formed to the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, his sublime harmonies allowing a ray of sunshine to appear on the overcast horizon of expatriation.
