100 years of Astor Piazzolla! To mark the birthday of the Argentinian tango legend, brothers Claudio and Oscar Bohórquez are releasing an album together with Piazzolla’s contemporary and ensemble colleague Gustavo Beytelmann, "Piazzolla: Patagonia Express" on the Berlin Classics label. The trio sets about playing part of Piazzolla’s legacy alongside repertoire composed by Beytelmann, leading the listener on a journey to the impassioned and mysterious world of the tango.
Boisterous, powerful and unique: Piazzolla’s music is highly versatile, deeply rooted in the tango tradition and yet always driven by curiosity and the search for modernity. His works are complex and demanding, and he reflects more than any other composer of his time the special musical language of that era. It is not possible to categorise his oeuvre as classical or popular music. Jazz and Brazilian music influences blend with folklore from the 1950s and 60s; tango is aligned with Bachian counterpoint, rhythm converges with profusely lyrical passages.

The diversity of Piazzolla’s style comes out on this album too. In addition to his traditional pieces like Le Grand Tango works such as Milonga del ángel and Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas can be heard. It is interesting to note that the “four seasons” were originally not conceived as a suite, but composed at different times and in various contexts. Piazzolla himself never performed them as one entity.

The motive for embarking on this album project was the encounter of Claudio and Oscar Bohórquez with Gustavo Beytelmann. “His rustic Argentinian manner, his musical and personal flights of fancy, plus the experience of having shared the stage with Astor Piazzolla so many times … all of that gave the decisive impetus to record this album”, the brothers explain.
Beytelmann, who went on tour with Piazzolla and who enjoyed a deep and lasting friendship with the composer, has dedicated the pieces Balada and Tango to the brothers in a duo setting. Piazzolla’s musical language comes through here, while Beytelmann’s piano trio arrangement of Duke Ellington’s Caravan is reminiscent of New York, where Piazzolla spent his childhood and youth.
Beytelmann composed his piano trio Ofrenda in 1992, on learning of Piazzolla’s death. It is an act of homage that – like this entire album – is meant to express deep admiration and reverence for this indefatigable and unbridled tango legend. © Berlin Classics

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
