The tangos of legendary performer and composer Astor Piazzolla are informed by a multicultural upbringing which saw him introducing the influences of Classical, Jazz, Rock and Klezmer music into a unique Nuevo Tango style which still sounds fresh and modern today. Histoire du Tango sums up the genre's entire evolution, Le Grand Tango is a virtuoso show-stopper, while Melodía en la menor expresses deep personal turmoil. Renowned Argentinian violinist Tomas Cotik's special arrangements also include Oblivion and Libertango, two of Piazzolla’s most popular and enduring pieces.

This album was mastered using Naxo's 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording they tailor their process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
