LE GRAND ASTOR

Actually, the three musicians of the Trio NeuKlang were planning to say goodbye to the Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla with their CD “Goodbye Astor”. But when they said goodbye, they realized that they could not cut themselves off from the energy and passion of his Tango Nuevos. So they have changed their mind and are saying “Hello again!”
For the first time in their new program, they dedicated exclusively to the music of Astor Piazzolla and show how they imagine a Piazzolla program that should have been heard. At the same time, they have remained faithful to their love of experimentation and have discovered in Piazzolla’s music yet completely different musical worlds:
The “Libertango” sounds as if Piazzolla was improvising with Grace Jones in a New York jazz club. “Jeanne y Paul” dance their last tango in Paris. The Argentine “Escualo” swims along with the white shark in the bay in front of Hollywood. And “Le Grand Tango” – the eponymous central work of the program – combines all the joy of playing and diversity of the line-up with clarinet, cello and accordion.
“Le Grand Astor” is an answer to the question of how Tango Nuevos can sound today. It will delight interested newcomers as well as longtime lovers of Piazzolla’s music, who will discover new things in familiar tango melodies.

GOODBYE ASTOR

“The last tango of Mozart”

The program sounds as if the great classical composers had met with Astor Piazzolla to record a CD together.

This musical encounter got in fact arranged by the Trio NeuKlang – they play in this program famous works of classical music in their own, influenced by tango and jazz style.

With their arrangements, the musicians of the Trio NeuKlang show that Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” is actually inspired by Astor Piazzolla, that Rossini’s “Barber of Seville” cut Ludwig van Beethoven’s hair and that jazz concerts took place in Edvard Grieg’s “Hall of the Mountain King”.

“Goodbye Astor” is also a declaration of love to tango and a deep bow to classical music.
