It is the story of a journey or rather, of a return: that of a great composer like Luis Bacalov, to his own land and home, which is also the land and home of tango. It is also the celebration of an encounter between two sacred monsters, between two artist souls who sang Buenos Aires and Argentina, because Bacalov returns home to cross, as has often happened, the streets of Carlos Gardel, singer and tango spirit icon. However, he retraces these roads that he already knows from having trodden every stone, with new eyes and always different feelings.
Here Bacalov welcomes Gardel’s inspiration, with the support of the piano alone he proposes his innovative spirit intact, whether he tackles the tango, whether he lands on the banks of samba or waltz. But to this personal elaboration of Gardel’s repertoire, he adds a touch of freedom that leads back to the great Hungarian composer Franz Liszt, a unique reference in the work of rewriting the scores.
