Carla Algeri is a bandoneonist and director of Polo Bandoneon, an organization which was created in the city of Buenos Aires for the teaching and promotion of the instrument. This organization helped lead to UNESCO declaring the music of Tango a World Patrimony of Mankind in 2009. In her new album, presented here, she performs alongside the Symphonic Orchestra and the Strings Orchestra of the Polo. The first part of the album, titled ‘Responso,’ is a tribute to Anibal Troilo, a legendary bandoneonist and director, with a selection of classics of the unforgettable Gordo. At the piano is Jose Pepe Colangelo and among the maestros of the Symphonic Orchestra, the first concert violin in the hands of Rafael Gintoli. The second portion of the album, ‘Cuando tu no estas,’ is a tribute to Carlos Gardel, also with his repertoire of classics. Among the guests are the maestros Rodolfo Mederos on bandoneon and Juan Alberto Pugliano on piano.
