Product details

Crossing over between ragtime, tango, modern classical and folk music of various cultures, this collection of recent works for violin and guitar spans a period of a shade over twenty years, from Astor Piazzolla's 1986 composition Histoire du Tango, to Tim Hansen's 2007 re-scoring of Earwig for Zoƫ and Daniel. Given the contemporary nature of the repertoire, and the fact that two of the works here receive their premiere recordings, it seems apt to 'borrow' the title from Piazzolla's concert-hall tango 'of today', Concert d'aujourd'hui. With the obvious exception of Piazzolla, the whirlwind tour through Europe, Argentina and Australia heard on d'aujourd'hui is provided by some of Europe and Australia's most exciting living composers.

Duration: 60 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and biographical notes on composers and performers.
