DUETTANGO (2017)

Piazzolla

Filippo Arlia

When Giulio Cesare asked me to write an introductory note for this album, I instantly thought of how Duettango was born. It came about by chance, out of a personal ambition in 2010 at the Nocera Terinese, between two piano lessons in the rooms of the Conservatory. My idea was to combine two instruments which at first sight have very little in common, such as the piano and the bandoneon. Up until Astor Piazzolla’s creation, these have always been elements of a sextet or a quartet, where the piano sadly plays a secondary part while the bandoneon constantly and exclusively converses with the violin. This recording wishes to prove that the piano and the bandoneon can interact splendidly, and if it is necessary they can have a dialogue with the violin or the voice without giving up their virtuosity and an important musical presence. I end this with two thoughts that will always follow me whenever I listen to this album: the first is an homage to Piazzolla, a composer to whom my career as a pianist and musician already owes a lot in many ways; the second is for Fernando Suarez Paz, because being able to play Escualo with the violinist to whom Astor dedicated these extraordinary pages was one of the most meaningful moments of my life.

Filippo Arlia

Duettango was founded in 2010 by pianist and conductor Filippo Arlia, Director of the Higher Institute of Musical Studies "PI Tchaikovsky" in Nocera Terinese and artistic director of Lamezia Classical Festival. The original group was formed by Arlia with bandoneon player Giuseppe Scigliano. Later on, the bandoneon player became Cesare Chiacchiaretta along with violinist Fernando Suarez Paz and vocalist Cecilia Suarez Paz. In recent years Duettango has given more than a hundred concerts throughout Italy and Europe. This includes concerts from the Sala Scarlatti of Naples at the International Castelfidardo Accordion Festival and the Teatro Politeama Lamezia Terme at St. Katherine Concert Hall in Vilnius (Lithuania). Duettango does research and dissemination of the tango and its union between the typical Argentine melody and compositional style of classical music. Not surprisingly, the songs performed are often arranged and transcribed by members of the duo, who are mainly classical training. The repertoire of Duettango includes numerous works by Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel and Luis Bacalov.
