Tango Argentino with Marikena Monti
JPK 52 12 09

Cologne New Philharmonic Volker Hartung, conductor
JPK 00 15 22 DDD re-mastered in 24bit/48k

A Concert extravaganza of Argentine Tangos is presented here in exciting live-performances. This Album is the result of a unique cooperation between Volker Hartung, members of the Cologne New Philharmonic and some of the greatest and well-known tango players from Buenos Aires:
Maestro Adolfo Gomez, grand seigneur of Bandoneon, the young and genial Alberto Pereyra, the amazing pianist Roberto César Calixto Cicaré, who in his youth had played together with Oswald Fresedo, the double-bass virtuoso Pablo Gatto and last but not least, the wonderful tango singer Marikena Monti. Together with first-chair soloists of Junge Philharmonie Köln they formed a unique blend of European & Argentine band sound during their sejourn in Germany.
Together they revived the greatest tangos of the past century and brought this program to an enthusiastic German public. Rarely will one listen to a recording of Tango music played with more devotion and fire. The young musicians of the Cologne Orchestra were carried away and overwhelmed by the overpowering emotional impact of this great music. Some of them regard this experience to this day as the most musical rewarding in their memories.
One may listen to this feast of sound and emotion and feel the same joy, than they did, when recording it live in concerts at Düsseldorf and Bonn in October 1997.

The players were:
ADOLFO R.GOMEZ & GILBERTO PEREYRA, BANDONEON • PABLO GATTO, BASS • ROBERTO CESAR CALIXTO CICARÉ, PIANO MARIKENA MONTI, VOCAL • GEORGIANA COSTACHE, IGOR MEGERETSKY, MICHAEL GUREVICH, violins • VOLKER HARTUNG, viola
JADRANKA GASPAROVIC, cello

Georges Boulanger conquered the field in Berlin of the 1930s as one of the greatest and most famous Gypsy Violinist with his incomparable tone, his vibrato, his great virtuosity and distinguished showmanship.

It makes him unforgettable. Salon Music and Georges Boulanger: DA CAPO!
