If Angels Can Dance . . .

If angels can dance, they will choose to dance to this music. One of Piazzolla's most perfect compositions, Milonga del angel, is rendered here in a classical manner by Dutch guitarist, Nathasja van Rosse. Every note has a full life and purpose in this careful and thoughtful interpretation. Ms. van Rosse has a special interest in music of Latin America and her first CD contains music not only of Piazzolla but also of composer and guitarist,Leo Brouwer, who did not arrange this piece but is responsible for arranging a widely played guitar version of La muerte del angel (played here by Brouwer, himself). Her second CD, Levantine, has a more contemporary flair.

Adding to the enjoyment of this video is the superb sound. Guitars are not the easiest instrument to record, particularly in a live concert environment, and it is done perfectly here. Congratulations to Frank Reijgersberg of Gitaarsalon who I am guessing is responsible for the good work here.
