The name Astor Piazzolla may be forever linked with the tango, but the master composer/artist had another passion that is finally revealed on this release: chamber music. Written primarily in the 1940's, before Piazzolla developed New Tango, these pieces demonstrate his flair for serious classical composition. The influences of Alberto Ginastera (his Argentine teacher), Bartok and Hindemith clearly steered the impressionable Piazzolla in a different direction. In addition, several tango-flavored chamber pieces composed in the 1960s and 1970s complement this unique collection. Most of the works on here have never before been recorded. The album features noted pianist Allison Brewster Franzetti, violinist Hector Falcon, violist Nardo Poy and cellist Eugene Moye.

Recorded June 28-30, 1999 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, New York, NY.

"Adheres to the European sensibilities while retaining that flavor that would blossom into the New Tango movement ... If you enjoy small-scale, neo-romantic music played with loving conviction and recorded with state-of-the-art techniques, then I highly recommend this disc." - Sound Stage!
