Notes and Editorial Reviews


First released in 1992 under the general title "Tangazo!" (after Piazzola's piece), this exceptional recital was the first in what promised to be a series of Argo recordings featuring Michael Tilson Thomas and his own New World Symphony. That project fizzled out when Argo did, as did this talented orchestra's subsequent deal with RCA. Still, collectors can take heart that these fantastic performances, including reference editions of the Chávez Sinfonia India, the Ginastera Estancia Suite, Revueltas' Sensamayá, and the Piazzola, are now available at budget price. The sonics were superb in 1992 and still are. [7/17/2001]
