Info for Astor Piazzolla: Adios Nonino (Remastered)

Adiós Nonino (Farewell, Granddad) is a composition by tango Argentine composer Ástor Piazzolla. It was written in October 1959 while in New York, in memory of his father, Vicente “Nonino” Piazzolla, a few days after his father’s death.

The piece was played at the royal wedding of Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and his consort Máxima Zorreguieta in homage to her Argentinian roots. The music has been used by several prominent figure skaters for their programs.

The real issue is the quality margins allowed by the pressing plant and-how often it changes out stampers. In the case of this record, conceived, recorded, produced and mastered by Giulio Cesare Ricci, the larger than life, wonderfully eccentric that only Italy could have produced. Senior Ricci has a special affinity for the number 496 so that's the number of records that have been pressed of this and his other recent Japanese-pressed vinyl titles. That is not enough to dull even the stamper's sharpest etch. Ricci cut the lacquers on a re-wired lathe that he'd bought from David Manley, along with the metal parts for the series of LPs Manley had issued during the darkest days of analog. l. The recording, in Rome's Pontificio Istituto di Musica Sacra from May 19th-27th 2001, when the world was a brighter, simpler place, features three Neumann tube microphones (U47, U48, U49) fitted with Ricci-designed and built preamplifiers and connected with Ricci-designed mike, line and power cables, feeding a two track Studer C 37 reel to reel recorder. The signal path could hardly have been simpler or purer and combined with the one-step pressing process plus the quiet vinyl, results in a sonic spectacular, though I think sr. Ricci didn't quite get a 100 percent holographic image of Accardoís violin. However, other than that minor quibble, the instrument's texture and tonality have been beautifully captured, as has the piano along with the orchestral accompaniment and the venue itself. Dynamics are wide-range and believable as well.This is a truly special LP set that will be enjoyed by only 496 lucky listeners. You'll revel in the sound and you'll likely to be moved to tears as the music elicits your own personal memories in reaction to the strong emotions Piazzolla brings to the compositions and the musicians wring from the charts.

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).
