Gardel's tangos remain classics, which no performer who aspires to be taken seriously can ignore. For this album Argentinian Tango specialist Diego selected some of Gardel's most popular tangos and arranged them for two guitars. The timbre of this instrument is exceptionally well suited to evoking in sound the musical riches of an impoverished community of immigrants in Argentina's past, as well as to making the fascination and glamour of Gardel's tango music come alive again. Both parts are of medium difficulty, and the melodies repeatedly introduce new elements of tone production and rhythm, training young musicians in technique and ensemble playing. And, last but not least, these duets are an ideal introduction to the profound music of the tango, whose vitality and versatility are not only fun, but which also holds totally new means of expression in store.
