About the album

"With the present album Continuado, we are building on the Piazzolla tradition in many ways. We play some of his staple works – think Oblivion – as well as hidden gems like Vayamos al Diablo and Concierto para Quinteto. Our very own Inti de Maet provided an arrangement of Piazzolla’s Libertango. We have also included work from local composers, who have added their own, personal, contributions to the tango nuevo genre. Jeroen D’hoe sought inspiration from the two most widely known Argentinian dances, the milonga and the tango, while Ben Faes decided to foreground the electric guitar, which tends to be somewhat left to oblivion. Both Two Argentinian Dances and La Noche Confusa were written especially for Triunfal Quintet. Speaking of ‘new tango’! Frédéric Devreese was, of course, hard to avoid. His love of tango is legendary and, as it turns out, a great source of inspiration for the young Jeroen D’hoe. Devreese wrote quite a number of works for quintet. We have opted for his Passage à 5." - Triunfal Quintet

"Voor dit album Continuado zetten we op verschillende manieren Piazzolla’s traditie verder. We spelen enkele van zijn bekende - denk aan Oblivion - en minder bekende werken - zoals Vayamos al Diablo en Concierto para Quinteto. Onze eigen Inti de Maet schreef een bewerking op Piazzolla’s Libertango. En we gingen in zee met enkele componisten van hier, die elk op hun eigen manier met het genre van de tango nuevo zijn omgegaan. Jeroen D’hoe liet zich inspireren door de twee meest gekende Argentijnse dansen: de milonga en de tango, terwijl Ben Faes de vaak wat in het vergeethoekje geduwde elektrische gitaar naar de voorgrond haalde. Zowel Two Argentinian Dances als La Noche Confusa werden speciaal voor Triunfal Quintet geschreven. Als dat geen nieuwe tango is... Verder mocht ook Frédéric Devreese niet ontbreken. Zijn liefde voor de tango is een publiek geheim en, zo bleek, een grote inspiratiebron voor de jonge Jeroen D’hoe. Devreese schreef verschillende werken voor kwintet. Wij kozen voor zijn Passage à 5." - Triunfal Quintet

Triunfal Quintet

Triunfal Quintet is a dynamic and idiosyncratic group. From their backgrounds in classical music and jazz, the five young musicians approach Astor Piazzolla's 'Tango Nuevo' in their own unique way. Their mission is to deepen and broaden the repertoire, and they are increasingly doing so by collaborating with Belgian composers, without averting their gaze from Argentina.  Bram Van Weverberg - accordion Linde Verjans - violin Inti de Maet - electric guitar Ellen Schepers - piano Juno Kerstens - double bass

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.
