Amazon.com Yo-Yo Ma might seem like an unlikely protagonist for the tango, but this intrepid musical explorer has taken his task seriously, collaborating with experienced tango musicians. Ma even participates in a posthumous collaboration with one 1987 Piazzolla recording. Furthermore, while he's obviously the headliner here, he doesn't dominate the arrangements nearly as much as he does the billing and photography of the disc. While the result isn't your essential Piazzolla album (that would have to include more of the composer's own playing), it's an atmospheric and convincing collection, perhaps a good introduction for those who don't know the music. --Leslie Gerber Product Description 10-time Grammy winner Yo-Yo Ma presents this remarkable tribute to Argentina's master of the modern tango. Recently, Astor Piazzolla's tangos have inspired a number of classical artists, but Ma's recording fully explores Piazzolla's range as a composer; his tangos and Milongas, music written for the cello and the unique "Tango Remembrances," a "duet" created with an existing track of Piazzolla on the Bandoneon. Other musicians include members of Piazzolla's quintet and Brazilian guitarists Sergio & O'Dair Assad.
