Notes and Editorial Reviews

"María de Buenos Aires occupies a special place in my life, just as it occupies a special place in musical theatre," Gidon Kremer has said. The great Latvian-born violinist's fascination with the music of Astor Piazzolla, the King of Tango, was taken to new heights by this tango operita with its intoxicating score and its poetic libretto by Horacio Feuer, who participated in this recording as a supernatural figure, El Duende. Again in Gidon Kremer's words, "As a work of art, María stands over us and invites each and every one of us to show his or her better self."
