About this release

Maximo Diego Pujol is a native of Buenos Aires, and was born in 1957. The sights, sounds, and smells of that great city inspire his music. Depictions of card games, the shady tree lined streets and of course the Tango and Milonga are all to be found in his music. The use of traditional or folk music in classical music has a long and dignified history. Bach raised the humble gavotte and gigue to an art form in his suites, Chopin turned the Polonaise in to a rallying cry for Polish nationalism when the country was suffering at the hands of oppressive neighbouring states. Bartok, Kodaly and Vaughan Williams in the 20th century rescued traditional music from their respective countries from oblivion and drew on the wealth of material for their compositions.

Pujol’s Historias sin palabras is a group of 12 pieces inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marques’s Doce cuentos Peregrinos. Color sepia is a musical description of old family photos, recalling long departed relatives, and times past. Torino is a cheerful and lively Milonga, inspired by the city.
