Brothers Bouclier

I have been looking for many days now for a good nuevo tango quintet to feature in this blog. Such groups remain my favorite source for Piazzolla's music. Two brothers are three short of a quintet but they do put a nice nuevo tango flavor into their version of Violentango. View Dimitri Bouclier on the accordion and his brother, Julien on the violin in this video which was recorded at a concert in Bonneville - presumably the one in the Haute-Savoie, not the one in Utah.

They also posted two other Piazzolla videos: Ave Maria (Tanti Anni) and Libertango. The first is quite nice, performed in a classical mode but their version of Libertango leans a bit too far toward the Lady-of-Spain style of accordion playing for my taste.

If the video does not appear below, click here.
