Cavatina Duo: Music of Astor Piazzolla
Guitar and flute aficionados, hold on to your hats! This is an incredibly hot recording, made by arguably the finest flute & guitar duo currently active. Moliner and Azabagic perform Piazzolla's music with the kind of smoldering intensity and rhythmic panache that has the listener ready to don dancing shoes and Tango. Disc annotator and arranger Sergio Assad writes: "The exceptional partnership of Denis Azabagic and Eugenia Moliner is the result of their very special natural gifts...their warm exciting renditions of the pieces presented on this CD do justice to the music created by one of the most inventive Latin American composers of all time."
“The insert essay concludes, ‘I believe Piazzolla would have greatly enjoyed listening to this new reading of his masterpieces.’ Those are bold words, but I have to agree.” - American Record Guide
“This is a nicely conceived CD with some pieces that seldom played receiving wonderful performances. The musicianship of both players is first-rate, and the recording is second to none. Therefore any lovers of this composer’s music should have no hesitation in looking up this fine recording.” - Classical Guitar Magazine
