Goodbye Astor

The new album from Trio NeuKlang sounds as if the great composers of classical music met Astor Piazzolla in the old Berlin Funkhaus broadcasting center to record an album together. In reality, this musical encounter was arranged by Trio NeuKlang – the CD features famous works from European classical music played in a unique style influenced by tango and jazz. With their arrangements, the trio demonstrates that Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” are, in reality, inspired by Astor Piazzolla, that Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” cut Ludwig van Beethoven’s hair on the side and that jazz concerts took place place in Edvard Grieg’s “Hall of the Mountain King”. “Goodbye Astor” is both a declaration of love to tango as well as a tribute to classical music.

Lost in Tango, the debut CD by Trio NeuKlang from Berlin, combines classic tangos nuevos from Astor Piazzolla with “tangoized” works by classical composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert. With its original arrangements, the trio combines musical genres and eras that were previously stylistically separate, letting old familiar sounds sound new. For this repertoire, the ensemble received excellent reviews from the press and praise from the public. The trio celebrated its success at numerous festivals, including the International Ludwigsburg Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the Brandenburg Summer Festival.
