Product Description

Bandoneonist and composer Dino Saluzzi has the long shadow of Astor Piazzolla to contend with, and on Kultrum he extends his countryman's chamber music explorations with the Munich-based Rosamunde String Quartet. Saluzzi plays with the quartet as his orchestra, keeping a parallel track for the bandoneon to play rhythmically against the longer violin and cello tones and then reverse roles, himself playing magnificent sheets as the strings jut out. But even "Salón de tango" sounds off to the left of anything recognizably tango, with puzzle pieces laying about that create the dance energy only when taken together. It's hard to get out from under Piazzolla's shadow with a bandoneon in hand, and while Saluzzi is certainly not trying to skirt influences, he moves quickly into a territory where the strings have diverse roles here, making the eight pieces feel more genuinely chamber-like than some of Piazzolla's works. In any case, Kultrum is undeniably an important move in the small circle of chamber music for bandoneon. --Andrew Bartlett

Error in the Amazon review March 25 2006

Format: Audio CD
You should note that the review above refers to another version of the "Kultrum" compositions--the record Saluzzi put out with the Rosamunde String Quartet. The "Kultrum" album on this page is actually solo bandoneon music by Saluzzi playing these compositions in their first appearance on record.
The "original" Kultrum is not to surpass Nov. 17 2014

It is a beautiful music recorded the usual spectacular quality of ECM. However, for me, no refinement can surpass Dino Saluzzi's original Kultrum solo recording. That is cultural treasure.
