Richard Galliano
«Habanerando» for Accordion and Strings

In 1846 the first bandoneon is constructed in a village in the Ore Mountains of eastern Germany. German emigrants take the little squeezebox with its penetrating tone with them to South America. There, in smoky bordellos and dive bars, the bandoneon strikes up a long-term liaison with a disreputable new dance: the tango. Later, Ástor Piazzolla will revive this style and give it to the whole world – and Richard Galliano is the hothead who on Piazzolla’s advice and following the model of Piazzolla’s «Nuevo Tango» renews the French music tradition by creating the «Musette Neuve»: a success story that thrives to this day, with a new chapter added now by the Tonkunstler Orchestra!
