Program Notes

The composer writes:

Concertango is first of all a work of fusion. On the one hand there is instrumental fusion, combining a classical symphonic group with a jazz trio (piano, bass, drums). Above these two groups, the saxophone soloist is the absolute protagonist.

On the other hand, there is stylistic fusion. We can find in this piece different stylistic reminiscences, from symphonic music from the beginning of the 20th century till real jazz elements. And above all, the tango is always present, especially the person of Astor Piazzolla. The title, a clear reference to one of Piazzolla’s most famous pieces, such as Libertango or Violentango, makes that very clear from the very beginning that Piazzolla was the real inspirer of this piece.
