If you like Classical music, buy this CD. If you like Jazz, buy this CD. If you like Tango, buy this CD. This is a masterpiece, with all Astor Piazzolla's band in top form, playing with the energy and soul of a live concert.
Adiós Nonino is unsurpassable, with a moving introduction by Pablo Ziegler on piano. All musicians play with deep expresiveness, complementing each other perfectly and creating a very rich sound, being both virtous (Libertango, Fracanapa)and expressive (Invierno Porteño, Adiós Nonino).
I recommend this CD to anyone who likes music. I cannot understand why so many tango musicians hated Astor Piazzolla for what he did to Tango. He took it to another level completely.

Frankly speaking, I didn't have an interest in Tango but Astor Piazzolla. So, I'm collecting his pieces..his own performing or not. "The Vienna Concert" is, I think, at least in my collecting, the execellent masterpiece of his. I think it expresses the enthusiasm fot Nuevo Tango, the activity and the hope of life..very well. Especially, 'Libertango' is all that Nuevo Tango tell us. If you want to feel Astor Piazzolla, you'd better choose it. It is the essensial of Astor Piazzolla.

The tango is a tragic crossroad. An existential detour; an everlasting pain by the anguish of having been an not be anymore: a love that died before was born, a troubling doubt and the winter hopeless inside the soul. An impossible love that it came too late and above all the tango concerns with the memory. Yours or mine, no matter the darkness makes all of we have the same identity under the neon twilight: once you crossed the forbidden line there is no way to look behind, but the tango rides on two merciless words: if and maybe. The tango is always winter, and the darkness its fellow partner.

Astor Piazzolla made a glorious with this overwhelming ensemble. Verano Porteño is simply an evanescent old picture inside a memories book. The insight textures interweaved by Astor mean a real journey through our otherness loaded with elegant rapture and discrete virility, and that it can be perceived in Caliente.

Decarísimo is an apparent happy statement, a half smile in the rainy and lonely night. An impressive and heartfelt homage to the dead love affairs, hidden lovers and forbidden loves.

Libertango works out as an incisive wound in the center of the soul. The musical obstinate is listened over and over with light and shadows modulations that appear and vanish suddenly as fugacious memories in a tired body and a spirit lack of the joy of living.

Revirado is a lovely theme; it goes directly to our youth roots when the time was our slave and the life was an eternal whisper.

And finally we have arrived to the two highlights tracks of the record: Invierno Porteño a real poem in which the words are explicit though we can not listen them.

The CD would not play in my CD player. Apparently there is a country code restriction that prevents playback in another country.

Too bad. I don't remember seeing that obvious mistake, which usually is presented in plain sight for the customer to notice.
