ROMANCE DEL DIABLO
THE MUSIC OF PIAZZOLLA
Marco first discovered the music of Piazzolla on the day he died – 4th July 1992 – when RAI reported the news and broadcast his music. His fascination for his music has persisted from that day forward. Traveling to Buenos Aires to research his doctoral dissertation, he had the privilege of examining the composer’s original manuscript scores and interviewing people who had worked closely with Piazzolla: his wife, Laura Escalada, his librettist Horacio Ferrer, and his fellow musicians Pablo Ziegler, Daniel Binelli, José Bragato, and Arturo Schneider.
This album features Marco’s own arrangements for Saxophone and Chamber Orchestra, described by Piazzolla’s publisher as “A splendid piece of work, impeccably executed, and a demonstration of great respect for the music of Maestro Piazzolla.”
