The imaginary walks Piazzolla makes through the streets of these two metropoles tell the story of the immigrant who, inwardly torn, has learned to survive in two worlds: one in which he tries to find a new home, and one that only lives in his memory and wistfulness. Piazzolla was a great admirer of composer Leonard Bernstein. No wonder, then, that he was present at the premiere of the musical 'West Side Story' in New York. Inspired by the meeting of these two composers, Kraayenhof decided to adapt several pieces from the musical for Sexteto Canyengue by translating them into their specific tango idiom, among them were 'Prologue', 'Maria','A Boy Like That', 'The Rumble'. Led by bandoneón maestro Carel Kraayenhof, the Dutch based sextet, present an engaging repertoire of new arrangements of well-known tango classics, and some fine new compositions.

A march, as a musical genre, is a piece of music with a strong regular rhythm which in origin was expressly written for marching to and most frequently performed by a military band. In mood, marches range from the moving death march in Wagner's Götterdämmerung to the brisk military marches of John Philip Sousa and the martial hymns of the late 19th century. Examples of the varied use of the march can be found in Beethoven's Eroica Symphony, in the marches militaires of Franz Schubert, in the marche funèbre in Chopin's Sonata in A sharp minor/B flat minor, and in the Dead March in Handel's Saul.

Virtuoso - David Garrett

Virtuoso - David Garrett
New Age/Instrumental | 1 CD | FLAC, none LOG, none CUE | 232 MB - MP3 | 320 Kbs | 64 MB
Publisher: Decca | 2007 | RapidShare

Part maverick, part genius, total virtuoso, the 25-year-old Garrett has released the LP to reflect the various musical tastes that have come to inspire him, whether its through his own interpretations of popular classics such as Carmen and Paganini, or classic film themes, including Morricone’s La Califfa ot Bernstein’s Somewhere.

No matter what he’s playing, though, Garrett excels and the best thing that can be said about the album is that it’s fun and capable of a much wider appeal than just fans of classical music.

Take his brilliant interpretation of Carmen Fantaisie, with Paco Pena, that’s a firm album highlight; one that’s delivered with plenty of South American passion, as well as a vibrancy and enthusiasm that’s utterly addictive.

Likewise, the fun, frivolous Csardas – Gypsy Dance, which begins slow, only to set a lovely pace that’s evocative of Hungarian travellers dancing over camp-fires.

Duelling Banjos, meanwhile, is an absolute romp – a virtuoso game of musical one upmanship between a flamenco influenced acoustic guitar and Garrett’s own dazzling violin. Early on, it’s particularly playful and prone to delivering much delight, before going utterly nuts for the frenzied, almost moonshine middle section.

It’s moments like these that ensure the album catches you off guard and fall for its charms, no matter how sceptical you may have been in the first place.

But as energetic and lively as Virtuoso can be, there’s also moments of serene beauty, in which Garrett’s violin positively weeps. Album opener La Califfa, from Morricone, is both cinematic and breathtakingly beautiful, while his version of Pachelbel’s Canon is a virtual masterclass.

Paganini Rhapsody will, of course, be familiar to anyone who watches The South Bank Show – and delights for exactly that reason. While Somewhere is terrific for lazy, hazy Sunday afternoon listening and an exquisite interpretation of the West Side Story classic.

And let’s not forget Garrett’s thrilling delivery of The Flight of The Bumble Bee which is as brilliant in CD form as it’s said to be live.

The accordion has never sounded as good as it does beneath Maria's expert cuticles, helped on by all the top players from the Sibelius Academy Folk Music Department, which comprises the band Aldargaz. Sibelius? That's in Helsinki, Finland, mate.

The playing is inspired, and more akin to jazz than any World Music mask you make it wear. Instrumental on the whole, there are times when a da dada voice comes in to make itself a part of the orchestration, as in the jig-like 'Melos', king of the bar room set. Jovial, social, a real swing at the fences.

A far cry from the one that follows it, a moody 'Lovina' that seems to sweep the Finnish countryside, using the soft violin as a divining rod for locating old ghosts, while the accordion which brushes the main tune on in gentle dabs stays well out in front, never afraid, only yearning.

Ahma is said to combine Finnish folk, jazz improv and Argentinean tango into Maria's 3rd solo release, and the first cd for the great NorthSide label. Oh yes, the melodies are superb, almost multi-layered, needing more than one listen to hear everything going on behind the ears. 'Namas' itself takes traditional music further than the typical ballad, melting lush components together for a rich landscape of sounds that are of their own time. Not now. Not then. They are of a different definition of classical (music), a beauty to behold. Timo Alakotila's piano and Olli Varis' acoustic guitar are only several compartments into which your thinking mind will fall and try to fathom its way out.

They call her Queen of 5-Row Accordion. Maria's talent is obvious, but the mark of a Good queen is to surround herself with the best musicians the world has to offer. Already a good one, this would then have to make her Great.
