PIAZZOLLA OBLIVION 180g LP
Limited Edition! Only 496 Copies Of this Title Will Be Pressed!
Salvatore Accardo is an outstanding Italian violin virtuoso, best known as a
master of the works of Niccolò Paganini, but equally accomplished across a wide
variety of repertory for the instrument. Accardo met Astor Piazzolla in Buenos
Aires in 1969 while on a tour of Latin America. He treasures the discussions
they had, and Piazzolla even dedicated his Milonga in D (the third track on this
record) to Accardo.

||an imaginative and rewarding LP
|This LP comprises five 5 of Astor Piazzolla’s compositions on side A and three 3 on side B. Each of these compositions is readily available on the internet as it was composed by Piazzolla. All that is necessary is to Google Astor Piazzolla’s XXXXX, where XXXXX represents the composition of interest, and up it pops. One may thus listen to the original composition as often as one likes.
At any rate each of these eight compositions has been revised by Salvatore Accardo, of I Musici fame, in collaboration with Francesco Fiore and Josè Bragato. The results are fascinating. If asked to describe what the resulting music is like, I could only say that it isn’t like anything else. It is a unique sound, and it stands alone.
The music is not particularly demanding of the listener. It is not heavy, but it is beautiful and rewarding. I suggest that this record merits a place in the library of any serious music lover, and I recommend it highly.
Products of Fonè tend to be of uncommonly high quality, and this record is no exception. Do not be alarmed by the high price. Products of Fonè are, at least in my judgment, a better value per unit dollar than are products of any other company with the possible exception of Audio Nautes. The ancient adage “You get what you pay for” is certainly not universally true, but bear in mind when considering this record that it is certainly true in this particular case.|
