Azica Records has announced the release of the American-based Neave Piano Trio‘s new album: Celebrating Piazzolla.
Recorded with acclaimed mezzo-soprano Carla Jablonski, the disc features Astor Piazzolla's Las cuatro estaciones porteñas, Las Pajaros Perdidos, El Gordo Triste, El Titere, Oblivion and Yo Soy Maria - and Argentine tango violinist and composer Leonardo Suárez Paz's Milonga des los Monsters 2.
"One of the biggest thrills of making this album was the opportunity to work closely with Leonardo Suárez Paz ... since his father was Piazzolla’s original violinist, Leo grew up around Piazzolla’s performances ... so this music, with it’s specific style and energy, is literally in his blood ..." violinist Anna Williams has told The Violin Channel.
"Working with him on not only specific effects like chicharra, tambor, latigo and other percussive strokes but also on overall timings and pacing was really enlightening and beyond inspiring ..." she has said.
"We felt closer to Piazzolla and his musical spirit than ever before."
