Third Angle New Music had this to say about Astor Piazzolla’s “Maria”:
“Sensual, seductive, spectral…dance music not for the faint of heart! The passion and fire of tango come to life in this expression of love, death and redemption. The most elaborate work by the master of the tango, “Maria” is the pinnacle of Piazzolla’s exploration of the soul of the tango, the duende of music/life/love/death.”
