AllMusic Review by

This unusual orchestral work demonstrates Piazzolla's dramatic flare. Continuing to work with tango motifs, Piazzolla explores the more formal possibilities of the style with strong results. The disc also includes works by Nino Rota, Franz Waxman, and Bernhard Heiden, all of which are beautifully realized by the Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss.
