Alexej Gerassimex – Piazonore (2015)

● Vibraphone

● Piano Duration: 6 minutes Composer’s Note:

Everybody knows the famous Libertango by Astor Piazzolla. I was going to make an arrangement for vibraphone and piano, because I really like this powerful combination. But during the process I moved away from the primary aim and found myself improvising and restructuring the material of this piece.

Though I drew the spirit of Piazzolla’s style of music with me, I escaped and stepped into a new “country.”

Piazonore is the result of this adventurous process and there is no longer a clear resemblance to it’s original form of a tango.

Don’t take it too seriously and have fun. -Alexej Gerassimex
