  • Description

    Juan Jose Mosalini understands how to interpret authentically the music of the great classic masters of Tango de Salon: Juan d'Arienzo, Carlos Di Sarli, Osvaldo Pugliese or Aníbal Troilo and showcases his skill in this live double album.

    It is the sound of the tango that has been carrying this Argentine around the world for more than 40 years. Mosalini expresses his passion for a musician's life on his bandoneon, which long ago led him to the forefront of this music genre. That he is currently considered the world's best tango musician who still can be experienced live is no coincidence. Mosalini has played with the most important orchestras and soloists of Argentina such as Susana Rinaldi, Leopoldo Federico, Astor Piazzolla, Jose Basso, Horacio Salgan, and Daniel Binelli. He has composed legendary film scores, published his own bandoneon teaching method, and became a professor for bandoneon in France, where he has been living since fleeing his homeland from the military dictatorship in 1977.

    At the height of his career, Juan Jose Mosalini has now made his greatest desire a reality: a large tango orchestra as was commonly the case in Argentina in the 1940s and 1950s. Mosalini's orchestra with a whole armada of bandoneons, violins, a viola, contrabass and grand piano impresses with razor-sharp intonation, bouncy elegant phrasing and a rousing sense of rhythm, which would be a real treat for many a "real" symphony orchestra. On the double CD "Live Tango", Mosalini and prominent collaborators such as Jean-Baptiste Henry, Marisa Mercade, Sandra Rumolino and Reynaldo Anselmi celebrate tango in its purest, most authentic form. The gradually developing fireworks of emotions, images and stories with traditional arrangements by Argentino Galvan, Gustavo Gancedo, Emilio Balcarce and Gustavo Beytelmann are truly captivating.
