Street Tango (Download)


In making the cd ‘Street Tango’ Kraayenhof realizes a long cherished dream: the combining of the music of Piazzolla and Leonard Bernstein. Both composers were strongly influenced by their lives in the huge immigrant cities Buenos Aires and New York with their own popular music genres. Thus Piazzolla’s compositions are characterized by the mix of tango with jazz and classical music, while Berstein’s music shows a fusion of jazz with classical and South American music. Kraayenhof and Sexteto Canyengue interprete, alongside the Matangi Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Ed Spanjaard, the music of Piazzolla and arrangements from Bernstein’s musical West Side Story, as well as Kraayenhof’s ‘Desconcierto’.
