Program Notes

Contrabajissimo was written by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla to feature Hector Console, the bassist in his final quintet. This expansive work showcases Piazzolla's ability to weave Western classical and tango music seamlessly. It was a work he considered to be one of his finest and for this reason it was the only music performed at his funeral.
