Description

From Piazzolla to Karol Beffa and Cole Porter, the musicians of the Ensemble Contraste, accompanied by the Liège Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, abolish the barriers between genres in this symphonic tango disc with unique arrangements. Around the sensual voice of Noëmi Waysfeld, renowned soloists revisit the classics with a communicative pleasure: one succumbs to the charm of these improvising musicians, able to reveal the hitherto hidden melancholy of Chan Chan, or the irresistible swing of My Heart belongs to Daddy.  The intermingled influences give this enticing program a taste for freedom.
