Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gabriel Castagnas account is full of verve… a fine programme. -- Gramophone

'The Swabian orchestra plays sweetly and is luciously recorded: Gabriel Castagna, who is a Piazzolla compatriot and something of a specialist in South American repertoire, clearly has the music in his bones.' -- International Record Review

…this very decently played collection is that rare thing nowadays, a Piazzolla disc in which everything is heard exactly as it was written. -- The Guardian ‘Classical CD of the Week’
