This is a well done video of an important live concert held in Buenos Aires in May, 2009. The concert brought Gary Burton back together with three quintet members - Pablo Ziegler on piano, Héctor Console on bass, and Fernando Suárez Paz on violín - along with Ricardo Lew on guitar and Marcelo Nisinman on bandoneón. Those familiar with Gary Burton's earlier work with Piazzolla will not be disappointed - the arrangements and performances are superb. Video and sound quality are excellent although a little more of Lew's guitar in the mix was needed.
For those familiar with Piazzolla's work, this is a fine addition to any collection of his music.
For those new to Piazzolla's work, this is excellent introduction which contains many of Piazzolla's best known works.
For the price, this is an incredible bargain. Buy it!
