Pure Piazzolla

I have been waiting all month for that perfect quintet producing pure Piazzolla. I am still waiting but don't really mind when I find music like that provided in today's video of the Camerata Porteña performing Invierno Porteño. Nine superb musicians from Argentina devoted to the performance of Piazzolla's music and providing pure Piazzolla. The Camerata Porteña was created by the current director, Marcelo Rodríguez Scilla, in 1986 and has performed the music of Piazzolla all over the world. Their CD's are unfortunately not broadly available nor is their music available on iTunes but they do have three CD's available through their website. There are also videos available on YouTube of their perfomances of Escualo and La muerte del ángel. All enjoyable, but this is my favorite.

If the video does not appear below, click here.
