the contours of a picture, fading in the course of
time, the laconical form and clear
rhythmic structure of
the classical Tango appear in many
of these pieces in a
transfigured lyrical way:
transmitted in the atmosphere
of the past musical salon, of which
they do not originate
in reality, but to which sensitive
pianists and ambitioned
amateurs can lead them."
The twelve pieces of this collection continue the romantical tradition
of the virtuoso piano
paraphrase, which received its peak during the 19th
century due to Franz Liszt’s (1811-1886)
paraphrases, opera fantasies and bravour pieces. As a
doubled hommage, they combine the
chromatic melodic of Tango-master Carlos Gardel
(1890-1935) and the brilliant piano style
of Franz Liszt.
The composer presented his work at the Leipzig Book
Fair in a well-frequented show by the
Friedrich Hofmeister Music Publisher.
