Editorial Reviews

Internationally acclaimed guitarist Jason Vieaux teams up
with Bandoneon virtuoso Julien Labro and A Far Cry chamber
orchestra in these new arrangements of Astor Piazzolla
masterpieces. Jason is well known for his Azica solo releases
including J.S. Bach Vol. 1 and Images of Metheny (Jason's
arrangements of the music of Pat Metheny). Julien Labro has
shown his versatility with jazz guitarist Frank Vignola on 100 Year of Django. A Far Cry chamber orchestra, based in Boston, performs frequently in the greater Boston area as well as throughout the United States.

If you already love classical guitar, this CD is a no-brainer addition to your collection.
ReadingAllTheTime
Ideally, the guitar/bandoneon duets "Histoire du Tango" will be left alone; they're about as close to perfect as could be hoped for.
Oscar O. Veterano
The last movement is a Tango, and Piazzolla and the musicians give us exactly what we expect here - good, solid, enjoyable music.

PIAZZOLLA - Jason Vieaux, Julien Labro, & A Far Cry - Azica

Astor Piazzolla's music is always full of surprises and eludes easy categorization; one minute it can be lush and romantically melodic, the next it has a nearly atonal modernity that, to some ears, verges on harshness. What it never manages to become is either dull or boring.
This recording by guitarist Jason Vieaux, bandoneonist Julien Labro, and the leaderless/collectivist chamber orchestra A Far Cry is every bit as exciting and imbued with the spirit of adventure as Mr. Piazzolla's music itself. In both Mr. Labro's arrangement of "Las Cuatro Estaciones Portenas" and the double concerto "Hommage a Liege" the soloists and orchestra bob and weave around each other as though they'd been playing together for years. The result is music at once challenging and beautiful; if Thelonious Monk had written modern jazz tangos for Argentine folk instruments and chamber orchestra, it might have sounded something like this.
The only major drawback here is in the actual recording process, which is occasionally marred by balance issues (apparently the engineer is a great fan of bass playing) and questionable mixing choices (like orchestral swells that drown out the guitarist mid-melody.) Luckily, this sort of thing can be fixed and, assuming the record company held on to the master tracks, one may hope for an improved version of this product at some point in the future. Ideally, the guitar/bandoneon duets "Histoire du Tango" will be left alone; they're about as close to perfect as could be hoped for.
All in all, excellent performances of consistently interesting and, often, exciting music that blends the best of European and South American traditions, classical and modern.

Jason Vieaux is a guitar genuis. Each CD he releases is another revelation of musicality and beauty. His partnering with Julien Labro and A Far Cry Orchestra for this awesome CD demonstrates yet another new dimension to the classical guitar. This CD is full of tender musicality with a lot of fun, too. If you already love classical guitar, this CD is a no-brainer addition to your collection. If you are newer to classical music, this would be a great introduction to the range and beauty of classical music. Listening to Piazzolla is pure pleasure!

Heard Jason being interviewed on WRTI (Temple University's radio station) and excerpts from this album being played and dashed to my computer to order this music. GREAT STUFF. Piazzolla's work is fascinating--and picking up the Hot Club of Detroit's Julien Labro for this recording was a brilliant idea. 5 stars all the way.
