Piazzolla / Five Tango Sensations (EP)
Released: Aug 2005
Tango is Argentina's national dance and Astor Piazzolla is the composer who lifts the music into art. Piazzollas bandoneón is central as the Kronos Quartet plays tense and mournful accompaniment that moves beyond the musical to the cinematic. The brilliant mess of "Anxiety" only proves why Buenos Aires has the most psychiatrists per capita in the world.
