Stanislav Angelov Short CV
Stanislav Angelov, aBulgarian born Classical Accordionist, holds Music degrees and diplomas from 3 continents – from Bulgaria, UK, South Africa & Argentina where he went in 2005 to study Bandoneón (another member of the Accordion family) – the instrument, which Piazzolla played & the instrument which is considered to be the soul of the Tango.
In 2004 Stanislav performed the Bandoneón (or Accordion) Concerto of Piazzolla with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of the Spanish born Maestro Francisco Bonin. Same year he led the orchestra for the production of Piazzolla’s Tango Operita “Maria de Buenos Aires”. In 2012 he performed again the Bandoneón Concerto of Piazzolla with the Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of the Columbian born Maestro German Gutierez.
Ástor Piazzolla (1921-1992)
Doble Concierto para bandoneón, guitarra y orquesta de cuerdas (Hommage a Liege)
He wrote this concerto for the Fifth International Guitar Festival, which was held in Liège, Belgium, in 1985. Piazzolla wrote the work for guitarist Cacho Tirao and for bandoneón and played that instrument at its premiere with Tirao and the Liège Philharmonic, conducted by Leo Brouwer (himself a master composer for guitar). The opening movement is marked Introduction Lentamente. This section is for the two solo instruments only. It is a piece clearly about loneliness and longing. The absence of the orchestra facilitates the piece being written in a free, seemingly unmeasured rhythm, allowing the soloists to create the impression of an improvised movement.
