One might think that Europe and Argentina are worlds apart. When it comes to music, however, close connections exist. Bandoneon player and composer Astor Piazzolla lived in a paradox between these worlds. He was ashamed of his tango past and wanted to be part of the classic modern tradition instead. I can relate to his inner turmoil really well as I love tango, jazz and pop as well as classical music. And it also took me a very long time to be able to melt all these influences into one musical unity. Piazzolla went from tango to classical until he found his own roots, whereas in my case the love of tango awoke after a long period of classical music.
Johann Sebastian Bach and other European composers, especially French, connect me with Astor Piazzolla. Their influence can be clearly heard in every one of his works, while the original tango elements are perceptible at the same time.

That my music was not so bad as I thought because I played tangos in cabarets. But that I had indeed something called
That's the reason for the title "PIAZZOLLA DETACHED"
With this album I want to make the musical influences of his life audible. The story of his life shows me that we should never give up trying to find our authentic selves.
