Tango as art music

The tight bonds between Europe and Argentina are known since the 19th century, the tango being one of them. Born in the melting pot of the popular suburbs of Buenos Aires and imported to Europe by the Argentine sailors, the tango aroused an extraordinary hype - especially in Paris - and its music has constantly been developed since the 20th century. With his CD "Nuevo Tango Nuevo", newly released by Oehms, Facundo Agudin, of Argentine roots and European education, presents us in a masterly way that the tango is a sage music maintained by fascinating composers - in this case Marcelo Nisinman, Julio Vieira and Pablo Ortiz, who present in this CD a work in world premiere.
