Tango music lives with a strong tradition of renewing existing compositions with different arrangements, sometimes in a really different style. ChamberJam Europe's new direct-to-disc album takes the listener through the history of Tango in various respects: There are entirely new, modern Tango compositions by Marcelo Nisinman, there are new arrangements of old Tangos, and there is a collection of pieces with the theme "L'histoire du Tango".
"Hombre Tango" is an obsessive piece including sections with irregular rhythms, which are not so common in Tango music. Even though it is Tango, it breaks with the tradition. "Oblivion", on the contrary, maintains its original melancholic and expressive mood, although the new arrangement is completely different than the original one, breaking its sweetness, especially in harmony and counterpoint. "Pourquoi tu te leves" is almost psychedelic. It is a story of love, starting well and ending bad. "El Entreterriano" is officially considered the first Tango in the history of Rio de la Plata. The new arrangement comes with a totally different language - the musical language of Buenos Aires, one century later.
"L'histoire du Tango" is one of the last compositions by Astor Piazzolla. He resumed the history of Tango in four periods: The beginning of Tango music ("Bordel 1900"), the pubs where he started his musical career ("Cafe 1930"), continuing with tiny places where Astor Piazzolla played with his quintet ("Nightclub 1960"), concluding with New Tango - today's Tango ("Tango d'aujourd'hui"), which actually belongs to the 1980s.

Three years ago, the international tango ensemble Chamberjam Europe has already been a part of the Berlin-based recording studio for the Berlin Masters. At that time, only the works of the Tango grandmaster Astor Piazzolla were on the agenda; Now the repertoire has been enriched by pieces and adaptations by the ensemble bandoneonist Marcelo Nisinman - how he makes the Tango Nuevo still a trace more "nuevo", by means of a clever and effective influence of atonal and postmodern art music Already impressively impressive, and certainly the perfect continuation of Piazzolla's four-movement suite "l'Histoire du Tango", which fills two sides. It is hard to believe that a technically as well as tonally so macellose and yet so energetic recording in the direct cut emerged. But is so. Thanks to the Berlin Masters. wv And certainly the perfect continuation of Piazzolla's four-movement suite "l'Histoire du Tango", which fills side two.
