Fine selection of tangos written for piano by Argentinian classical composers
Besides having the intention to disseminate tangos by important Argentinian classical composers, this selection is the result of a deep research made by the pianist on an almost unthrodden path: the subject of the relationship between classical composers and the tango along all times. These could not avoid the seduction power of tango music at all. Most of these scores are valuable manuscripts. The programme covers pieces from around the turn of the 19th to 20th century (N°3, 6, 8, 12), from the twenties (N°1, 2, 4, 10) and modern or contemporary (N°5, 7, 9, 11, 13). -------ESTELA TELERMAN studied with Dora Castro at the Municipal Conservatory of Music and completed her studies in Liberal Arts at the University of Buenos Aires.
