Concierto Para Bandoneon / Tres Tangos

About this Album

As Gershwin married jazz with the European symphonic tradition, Piazzolla here transplants the tango into the concert hall, extending its boundaries beyond the limits of song and dance. The album features virtuoso performances by the composer on the bandoneón, the signature instrument of tango, accompanied by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, under the direction of Lalo Schifrin.
