Tango Real: Milongueando en
Berlín WW 301
| cd's | artists | order
'Milongueando' is a
colloquial term from Buenos Aires, it means 'to drift from one
night-spot to the next'. This way of turning night into day has
captivated tango-fanatics not only from the banks of the Rio
de la Plata.
Like in its mother
country, Tango Argentino now witnesses a renaissance in Europe
and the US . Although the heyday of tango, when Osvaldo Pugliese,
Anibal Troilo or Francisco Canaro and their orchestras went touring
around the whole world is history today, the spirit of the30's
and 40's is still alive in sextetos like Sexteto Mayor from Buenos
Aires or TANGO REAL from Berlin.
The Sexteto was founded
in 1994 as one of the few real tango-orchestras outside of Argentina.
In TANGO REAL's arrangements the essence of tango - its pulse,
cantability and emotional intensity - combines with the six musicians'
personal expression. They reflect the contact and cooperation
with renowned tango musicians such as Rodolfo Mederos or Nestor
Manconi as well as the communication with the audience during
tango-balls, concerts or major tango-festivals.
For this recording
TANGO REAL has chosen some top-flight and timeless compositions
of e.g. Julio de Caro or Osvaldo Pugliese and rearranged them
in their distinctive way. These 15 diamonds of instrumental tango
reveal the joy of these musicians from Berlin and they prove
that tango hasn't lost anything of its liveliness.
The CD was recorded
at Sender Freies Berlin, one of Germany's leading radio stations.
