Guess what else we brought back from Argentina other than recorded soundtracks from the legendary…
“Beethoven was once new,” I used to be reminded by my music composition professor at graduate school where I was trained as a contemporary classical composer, writing my then next symphony, being afraid that my new symphony had no space in this world because there already exist so much music in this world.
Beethoven might have had a moment of doubt wondering if Mozart had already taken up all the creative spaces in his world. Most likely not: he wrote a tonne of new music anyway. He needed urgently to express his point of view of his world.
Ben & Winnie has the same need to express our perspective of the world here and now. We do it by playing a newly-composed tango like the title track of our new CD La Próxima Traición and reinterpreting older tango arrangements by D’Arienzo, Pugliese and Troilo with only the bandoneon and piano.
