Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Both devotees of tango and fans of Barenboim will find much to enjoy here. Recommended." -- Video Librarian

In this personal pilgrimage, world-renowned pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim travels to Buenos Aires to rediscover his home town, the magic of tango and the legend of its greatest pioneer, Carlos Gardel.

Interviews and fabulous archive footage evoke the glamorous and optimistic spirit of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century, and provide a framework for investigating the forces which brought such material and artistic wealth to its impoverished, immigrant communities. Barenboim demonstrates tango styles and techniques, and brings the music of Gardel, Salgán, Píazzolla and
Read more Ginastera to life in performances with Rodolfo Mederos and Hector Console, and in a thrilling partnership with Placido Domingo.

Subtitles: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish
