Diablo y Tango

Diablo y TangoExotic love songs & dances by Astor Piazzolla & Manuel de Falla arranged for guitar & violin.

Emil teams up with guitarist Aaron Larget-Capan in three songs from ‘Siete Canciones Populares Españolas’ by Manuel De Falla that span an emotional range as varied as the Iberian landscape – from the fierce passions of the joys and pains of love (El Paño Moruno), the tender intimacy of a mother’s lullaby (Nana) to the seductions rhythms of loss (Jota). ‘Bordel 1900’ by Piazzaolla is a snap shot of the flirtatious and vivacious nightlife of Buenos Aires, Argentina at the turn of the last century.
