Piazonore Orchestra Version
Composer: Alexej Gerassimez
Instrument: Vibraphone and Symphony Orchestra
Duration: approx. 6 min.
Arranged by Matthias Bucher
Everybody knows the famous „Libertango“ by Astor Piazzolla. I was going to make an arrangement for vibraphone and piano, because I really like this powerful combination. But during the process I moved away from the primary aim and found myself improvising and restructuring the material of this piece.
Though I drew the spirit of Piazzollas style of music with me, I escaped and stepped into a new „country".
„Piazonore“ is the result of this adventurous process and there is no longer a clear resemblance to its original form of a „tango“.
