Piazzolla: Los pájaros perdidos / The Wiesław Prządka Quinteto Tango Nuevo
The Wiesław Prządka Quinteto Tango Nuevo is an ensemble created by the most outstanding Polish bandoneon player, fascinated by the music and the figure of Astor Piazzolla. Compositions of the Argentinian virtuoso combine elements of classical and contemporary music as well as of jazz and tango. Piazzolla would always select the best performers from various musical communities to collaborate. The creation of Wiesław Prządka’s ensemble was based on the above rule, where the violin is played by the concertmaster of the Poznań Philharmonic, Marcin Suszycki, and the piano by Rafał Karasiewicz, a versatile pianist specializing in theatre music, jazz and blues; Marek Piątek is a guitarist who feels at ease in almost all musical genres, but loves Brazilian samba and bossa nova the most, while the double bass player Zbigniew Wrombel is a living legend of Polish jazz. The present album is the first production of Wiesław Prządka Quinteto Tango Nuevo. It is released in 2021 – the year we are celebrating the centenary of the Argentinian master’s birthday.
