The Edge of Tango (Astor Piazzolla/Eduardo Rovira)
The title of this double portrait is not chosen by chance. Astor Piazzolla and Eduardo Rovira are usually portrayed as the two pioneers of avant-garde tango. It has been claimed that there was some rivalry between them, and it is disputed which of the two was the first to modernize the tango. Piazzolla laid the foundation for the emergence of modern tango in 1955 with Octeto Buenos Aires. The following year, Rovira joined the Octeto La Plata, but left no commercial recordings.
Starting from this point, the group SONICO has created its third album "Piazzolla-Rovira: The Edge of Tango".
The album presents simultaneously the music of both octets, the first representatives of the tango avant-garde. With these ensembles Piazzolla and Rovira for the first time went to the limits of the genre.
