About the album

In 1994 the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet recorded the CD "Contrasaxeando / Tango Nuevo" with bandoneon player Gustavo Toker and pianist Juan Pablo Dobal. An extensive concert tour followed, with bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof eventually replacing Toker. The tour and the CD were devoted to the music of Astor Piazzolla and both were extremely successful.

Ten years on, the time was ripe for an encore.

Together with Hiltula (Tobal being back in Argentina) and Dobal, the quartet goes in search of the post-Piazzolla tango, while still paying tribute to the great master. We are treated to a rendition of Piazzolla's bandoneon solo Toccata Rea from his opera 'Maria de Buenos Aires', Milonga Loca ('crazy Milonga') and Mumuki, and the sextet also plays his La Muerte del Angel as an encore.
