Salvatore Accardo conducting the Orchestra da Camera Italiana performing Astor Piazzolla's Oblivion.
Salvatore Accardo is an outstanding Italian violin virtuoso, best known as a master of the works of Niccolò Paganini, but equally accomplished across a wide variety of repertory for the instrument. Accardo met Astor Piazzolla in Buenos Aires in 1969 while on a tour of Latin America. He treasures the discussions they had, and Piazzolla even dedicated his Milonga in D (the third track on this record) to Accardo.
"I believe that Piazzollas place is with the great musicians of the 20th century, like Gershwin, who have been able to convey into their compositions, in an absolutely original way, the musical currents of their time, thus creating a personal and highly distinctive style. If you happen to listen for the first time to one of his pieces, you understand immediately that its by Piazzolla. His melodies are unique, yearning. And so is the rhythm, of which we have already said. Astor was a truly complete musician, who combined an extraordinary inventive talent with an exceptional interpretative technique, the fruit of many years of hard study and work." - Salvatore Accardo

The original Master read by an Ampex ATR 102-1 / 2 inch - 30 ips (76 cm / s ) is transferred in real time on a Nagra 4s - 1 /4 inch - 15 ips (38.1 cm / s). The tape used is an SM900 - RMG - 1 /4 inch reel with metal flange 26.5 cm . The recorded tape is contained in a cardboard box which has a graphic personalization front / back with the indication of the music, performers and technical notes. The box containing the "ANALOG MASTER TAPES - Fonè by Signoricci " is packaged in a protective clear plastic bag with releasable adhesive closure .
** It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.Features:
