PRESS QUOTES

CRITICS ARE RAVING ABOUT TANGO TANGO !

"...un delicioso CD perfumado con un melancólico aire de tango...la sensitiva interpretación...una de las más brilliantes interpretaciones hechas hasta la fecha."
...TANGO Reporter, Los Angeles, March 1999.

"Viveza's arrangements are tasteful, strongly delivered, and refreshingly free of rhetoric...forthright approach to the music's gestures...refreshing"
...Saturday Free Press, Winnipeg, Oct 3 '98.

"The performers play all this stuff as though they've just arrived at the recording studio after a hot weekend in Buenos Aires, and the sound is tops."
...Douglas Hughes, The Georgia Straight, Vancouver, Oct 29-Nov 5 '98.

"Another Viveza for their many fans, and for new ones...vital music and terrific recorded sound with lots of presence. The instrumental arrangements are bright and focussed."
...The Magic Flute, Vancouver, Flutenotes Oct. '98

"Vancouver's Viveza takes the floor with another winning tango release. The playing is sensuous and precise, and the booklet notes by bassist Fawcett are excellent. Albums like this keep tango's meaning alive."
...Lloyd Dykk, The Sun, Vancouver, Nov. 7, '98

"Viveza announces the release of their fifth CD...a number of items appearing on the CD were especially composed for Viveza."
...Ensembles Canada, Oct. '98

"You can do no better than to pick up a new CD called Tango Tango played by the brilliant, Vancouver-based ensemble known as Viveza, whose members bounce around on so many instruments that they sound like a full orchestra..."
...Douglas Hughes, The Telegraph Journal, New Brunswick, Oct. '98
