About the album

MisaTango was composed between September 1995 and April 1996 by the Argentine composer Martín Palmeri.

The first performance was given on August 17, 1996 at Teatro Broadway in Buenos Aires by the Orquesta Sinfonica nacional de Cuba, the Choir of the Law Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires and the Polyphonic Choir of the City of Vicente López (choirs to which the work is dedicated).

MisaTango is a choral mass on Tango sounds. It is composed on the same movements as a mass in classical Latin, in which the harmonics and syncopated rhythms of tango are mixed. The composer also introduces the emblematic instrument of tango, the bandoneon, soloist alongside a string orchestra (violins, violas, cellos and double bass) and the piano. A mezzo-soprano solo part punctuates the work, responding to the mixed choir.

The work gained much notoriety when it was performed in Rome in October 2013, in the Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola, during the International Festival of Music and Sacred Art in the Vatican. The MisaTango was chosen that year to pay tribute to the enthronement of the former cardinal of Buenos Aires who became Pope Francis in 2013, in reference to the Argentine origins of this former Tango dancer.

"This work was written with the intention of offering my choirs a choral symphonic work that could bring us closer to the tango repertoire. Indeed, working with my choirs, I have found how difficult and complex the interpretation of traditional tangos by choirs is. This work is therefore a tribute to choirs and tango as well as to its creators. But it is also the result of a spontaneous production, the fruit of my experience as a choir director, pianist and tango arranger. "Martín Palmeri
MisaTango wurde zwischen September 1995 und April 1996 vom argentinischen Komponisten Martín Palmeri komponiert.

Die Uraufführung fand am 17. August 1996 im Teatro Broadway in Buenos Aires durch das Orquesta Sinfonica nacional de Cuba, den Chor der juristischen Fakultät der Universität von Buenos Aires und dem mehrstimmigen Chor der Stadt Vicente López (Chöre, denen das Werk gewidmet ist) statt.
MisaTango ist eine Chormesse zu Tango-Klängen. Sie ist auf denselben Sätzen wie eine Messe in klassischem Latein komponiert, in die die Harmonik und die synkopierten Rhythmen des Tangos gemischt sind. Der Komponist stellt auch das symbolische Instrument des Tangos, das Bandoneon, solistisch neben einem Streichorchester (Geigen, Bratschen, Celli und Kontrabass) und dem Klavier vor. Eine Mezzosopran-Solostimme unterstreicht das Werk und antwortet auf den gemischten Chor.
Das Werk erlangte große Bekanntheit, als es im Oktober 2013 in Rom, in der Kirche St. Ignatius von Loyola, während des Internationalen Festivals für Musik und Sakrale Kunst im Vatikan aufgeführt wurde. Der MisaTango wurde in jenem Jahr ausgewählt, um die Inthronisierung des ehemaligen Kardinals von Buenos Aires zu würdigen, der 2013 Papst Franziskus wurde, in Anspielung auf die argentinische Herkunft des ehemaligen Tango-Tänzers.
"Dieses Werk wurde mit der Absicht geschrieben, meinen Chören ein chorsinfonisches Werk anzubieten, das uns das Tango-Repertoire näher bringen könnte. In der Tat habe ich bei der Arbeit mit meinen Chören festgestellt, wie schwierig und komplex die Interpretation von traditionellen Tangos durch Chöre ist. Dieses Werk ist daher eine Hommage an die Chöre und den Tango sowie an seine Schöpfer. Aber es ist auch das Ergebnis einer spontanen Produktion, die Frucht meiner Erfahrung als Chorleiter, Pianist und Tango-Arrangeur. "Martín Palmeri

Composer(s)

Ástor Piazzolla

Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) is one of most important tango composers of all time. Surprisingly, he spent a large part of his youth in New York. In 1937, Piazzolla returned to his mother country Argentina. There, he started to focus on a career as a classical pianist while in the evening he would play accordion in tango cabaret. From 1955, he worked on his own compositions and wove these two influences together to a new, refreshing sound: the 'tango neuvo'.  At the wedding of crown prince Willem-Alexander and Máxima Zorreguieta, Carl Kraayenhof made a spectacular impression with his performance of Adios Noniño. Piazzolla died in 1992.
