Info zu Astor Piazzolla: Le Grand Tango (Remastered)

Franceso Fiore, who wrote the transcriptions and revisions of the music for this album says “The thought that never abandoned me during the writing of the scores was not only the memory of Astor Piazzolla, ingenious composer, master of many diverse styles (film music, tango, pieces of classical structure such as fugues etc.) on which he was able to impose the strength and honesty of his personality of musicianship, so varied and deep, thus moving and thrilling listeners of different ages, sensitivity and taste. But also, and especially the image of Piazzolla as a virtuoso of bandoneon, a small instrument with huge possibilities. An instrument with which he was able to reach supreme peaks of expressiveness, through a relentless rhythmical style which, nevertheless, could offer moments of ineffable nostalgia and lyricism.”

This album was recorded by Giulio Cesare Ricci at Pontificio Istituto di Musica Sacra in Roma on May 2001. For this recording Giulio Cesare Ricci used the original tube microphones Neumann U47, U48, M49 and all its equipment: mike pre-amplifiers, digital, line, microphone and supply cables Signoricci.

Recorded in Stereo DSD on Pyramix using dCS A/D and D/A converters.

Also for this recording Giulio Cesare Ricci used a "field effect" recording technique, natural sound, without the use of equalizers, no sound expansion and compression systems ... all this to make the listener live in his own system domestic hifi the live effect as if he was present at the performances.

Salvatore Accardo
born September 26, 1941 in Turin, northern Italy) is an Italian violin virtuoso and conductor.

Accardo studied violin in the southern Italian city of Naples in the 1950s. He gave his first professional recital at the age of 13 performing Paganini's Capricci. In 1956 Accardo won the Geneva Competition and in 1958 became the first prize winner of the Paganini Competition in Genoa. He has recorded Paganini's 24 Caprices (re-recorded in 1999) for solo violin and was the first to record all six of the Paganini Violin Concertos. He has an extensive discography of almost 50 recordings on Philips, DG, EMI, Sony Classical, Foné, Dynamic, and Warner-Fonit. Notably, he has recorded an album of classical and contemporary works in 1995 on Paganini's Guarneri del Gesù 1742 violin, the "Canon".

Accardo founded the Accardo Quartet in 1992 and he was one of the founders of the Walter Stauffer Academy in 1986. He founded the Settimane Musicali Internazionali in Naples and the Cremona String Festival in 1971, and in 1996, he re-founded the Orchestra da Camera Italiana (O.C.I.), whose members are the best pupils of the Walter Stauffer Academy. He performed the music of Paganini for the soundtrack of the 1989 film Kinski Paganini. In the 1970s he was a member of the celebrated Italian chamber orchestra "I Musici".

Accardo owns one Stradivarius violin, the "Hart ex Francescatti" (1727) and had the "Firebird ex Saint-Exupéry" (1718).
