Label : AEON distributed by Harmonia Mundi
Music : Astor Piazzolla
Special Guest : Vincent MAILLARD, Vibraphone
This very remarkable Quartet, on the border of the classical music and the musics of the world, signs its sound recording debuts with an album completely dedicated to the music of Astor Piazzolla (“Libertango”) at Aeon / Harmonia Mundi
The Quartet Caliente defends a respectful, humble and internal approach to this music, looking, in the scrupulous way of the interpreters of a classic string quartet playing Mozart, Brahms or Bartok, to respect the letter and the spirit of the composer.
The music of Piazzolla resounds then with the new truth and the density. Made up of four young French musicians – Guillaume Hodeau in the bandoneon, Michel Berrier in the violin, Cédric Lorel in the piano, Nicolas Marty in the double bass + Vincent Maillard in the vibraphone, the Quartet Caliente has just taken away the very desired “Astor Piazzolla Music Award” in Italy.
This concert represents an ideal opportunity to discover this interpreters’ quite new and exemplary generation of the Nuevo Tango. Impressive!
