OUT NOW | Karen Gomyo's New CD "A Piazzolla Trilogy"

Featuring guitarist Stephanie Jones and the Orchester National des Pays de la Loire, the album is an homage to Piazzolla's tango-inspired music and the 100th anniversary of his birth

 

BIS Records has announced the release of violinist Karen Gomyo's new album, "A Piazzolla Trilogy."

The album contains music by Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla: "Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas," three of his Tango Études for flute or violin solo, and "Histoire du Tango."

Gomyo first heard Piazzolla's music at age 14 and told The Violin Channel that she was "completely spellbound" from that moment onward. The release of "A Piazzolla Trilogy" coincides with the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth.

"I had never heard such a combination of sensuality, fierceness, playfulness, sadness, and nostalgia," Gomyo said. "I wanted to pay homage to this great genius of the Nuevo tango who became an integral part of my musical life."

The album includes strings-only versions of the works, which were all originally written for tango quintet.

Gomyo's collaborations with Piazzolla's contemporaries and successors have contributed to her deep understanding of his music. She has played with pianist Pablo Ziegler and his Tango Quartet as well as bandoneonist Hector del Curto — both musicians performed frequently with Piazzolla during his lifetime.

"I hope that the love and seriousness my colleagues and I put into this music will make listening to this recording an enjoyable experience, and create even more Piazzolla devotees," Gomyo said.

You can purchase the album on the BIS Records website or on streaming platforms Spotify and Apple Music.
