For those of you who have not previously been exposed to the music of Astor Piazzolla I would comment that he is, in the opinion of many, one of the leading composers of the last century. As well as being prolific in his output he possessed in abundance the ability to create and arrange beautiful music with a profundity and integrity that bears comparison with any other. Not for him the avant-garde musings of other composers Piazzolla's creativity ran so deep that he did not need to resort to the esoteric.
His music is both accessible and clear but always new and reinventing itself. His music ran from his pen almost as fast as he could write it down - he was a true natural. Only Piazzolla had the ability and vision to create a sustained work of Tango music at this level of quality.
The musical material is of the highest standard and contains much deeply moving music. Horacio Ferrer's contribution is less easily measured especially given the rather challenging Spanish vocabulary and imagery he uses. The story is rather impressionistic involving Maria dying twice now that really is tragic! The original Piazzolla version of this work was rather different to the current arrangement which has a very classically oriented approach based largely on strings. Use of the bandoneon Piazzolla's weapon of choice is substantially reduced and a greater emphasis has been put on strings, especially 'Cello.
Gidon Kremer, the arranger, band leader and violinist has added greatly to the work by interpreting it with enormous sensitivity and taste. I saw a production of "Maria" in London two years ago and the arrangement was very mediocre but Kremer's production is in a much higher league and top marks to him for bringing the essence of Piazzollas music.
For those interested in following Piazzolla's music through it is worth noting that Kremer is an excellent interpreter of Piazzolla's music having produced a number of excellent CDs.
In the case of "Maria" the classical background and sympathy with Piazzolla's compositions gel particularly well in this production given the scale of the work and the resources required to sustain the production. Much, possibly even all, of this music are so poignant that they will reach into your soul and remain with you. All of this production is music at the highest level of creativity and humanity; it starts nigh on perfect and never dips below that high level, Piazzolla seemed incapable of producing "filler" in his music.
This is is amongst the greatest music of the last century regardless of genre. For those looking for truly great music I cannot recommend this CD highly enough. I urge you to buy it and immerse yourself in it.
Desde que lo escuche solo deseaba tener una copia. La lleve a casa y mi esposa dijo al escucharlo, "oh, es Piazzolla". En efecto, es y no es. Sin duda el alma de Piazzolla esta en este trabajo asi como la presencia de Maria-Tango, una obra que ahora solo me falta verla en uno de los teatros de Buenos Aires, cuando vuelva de visita a esa querida ciudad, para tener una vivencia completa. Recomiendo este trabajo y veran, desde el primer tema, que no es una recomendacion simplemente formal.
