Homage to the immortal genius of Piazzolla, this monographic program offers the listener the opportunity to navigate between a selection of his most famous tangos (among the 4 seasons, Libertango, Adios Nonino, La milonga del Angel, Oblivion, Concierto para quinteto ...) and also to hear almost entirely the very last album of the quintet entitled Camorra, little played in public by the great Astor because of his hospitalization only a year after his release.

This concert, like a testament to the father of tango nuevo, brings together in a breathtaking whirlwind all the influences that have created his inimitable style: a melting pot between Bach, American jazz, and the great composers of the 20th century Ginastera, Ravel, Boulanger, Bartok, Stravinsky ... The extreme violence of the true tango symphony represented by the Camorra cycle, the overflowing energy of Chin chin, the fiery Concierto para quinteto underline the struggle, the surpassing of oneself and the determination to impose towards and against the whole style of concert tango of which he is the inventor. In contrast, Soledad's magnificent despair draws the image of a man torn between his roots (the eternal idea of ​​"Vuelvo al Sur", the return to the South), and his loves, as well as an introspection as if to stop time and savor new sounds and shimmering harmonies in the Romance del Diablo ...

This bouquet of tangos symbolizes not only the centenary of an exceptional composer, but also the collaboration, sharing, and friendship of these four chamber musicians who, for almost 10 years have been fighting with passion so that, in words from the newspaper Le Monde, "their Schubert is called Piazzolla". The SpiriTango Quartet therefore interprets this music according to the relentless will of the Argentine Master: with rage.
