Tangos for Piano from Latin America and Europe

This CD places the tangos of South America, where the dance originated, next to and against tangos written by European composers in the early twentieth century, when the tango first crossed the ocean. In addition, three recent tangos written by Dutch composers are included, two of which were composed especially for Marcel Worms. From the very beginning, the piano played an important role in the tango orchestra. Many of the genre's greatest figures were both bandleader and pianist.
