Piazzolla - L’histoire du tango
2. “Café 1930”
Gidon Kremer

Piazzolla’s four-movement “History of the Tango” is a cycle cleverly depicting the evolution of the tango from its origins in the habañera and milonga into the kind of concert music for which Piazzolla became famous. The second movement, “Café 1930,” languidly and nostalgically evokes the tango style of the composer’s youth, as he would have known it from the cafés of Buenos Aires. The music was originally conceived for flute and guitar; this 1996 recording is from an arrangement of the cycle presented by violinist Gidon Kremer and colleagues.
