Description
The eight-disc boxed set brings Kremer's six previously released, bestselling recordings of the great Argentine composer's music together for the first time, including four Nonesuch releases—Hommage à Piazzolla (1996), El Tango (1997), Eight Seasons (2000), and Tracing Astor (2001)—and two from Teldec—the opera María de Buenos Aires (1998, two CDs) and Tango Ballet (1999). The seventh CD is a 14-song, live recording from the CBC's Glenn Gould Studio from 1997, with liner notes by composer and fellow Argentine Osvaldo Golijov.

"Piazzolla's harmonic sequences have a sense of inevitability in the way they pull inexorably toward the cadence, and it is the core of Piazzolla’s art to arrange—or try to postpone—these arrivals in the most wrenchingly bittersweet of ways."—composer John Adams

"Latin melancholy meets … Kremer's restless, nervous temperament and wiry tone, giving the music an extra psychological tension, as well as some eccentric flights of improvisation. Wonderfully haunting."—USA Today

"Kremer … has a temperament as sweetly adventurous as a child's and at times as doleful. Doleful is the word for much of this accomplished if whimsically arranged music … fascinatingly performed."—Philadelphia Inquirer
