Alejandro Fasanini, a composer born in Argentina, founded in Italy a chamber tango orchestra.  With both the bandoneon and multiple string instruments, the recordings are of great acoustic quality. Sometimes passionate metamorphoses appear and vibrate intensely with a sharp tone and written in unususal times. Soft and romantic is the female voice. It is a marvelous work that develops a style under the influence of Piazzolla.Continue reading

An Argentinian composer abroad has something more to say in his tangos

Twenty years ago, Alejandro Fasanini – Argentinian musician and composer – decided to leave for the continent of his ancestors. But he did not leave Argentina unaccompanied: he sailed off together with his nostalgia, and this nostalgia he sublimated into music, made it into tango. Thus, in 2010, he released some original pieces of his own, played by an orchestra that Alejandro himself put together, and which he decided to call “Hijos ilegítimos de Astor,” the “Illegitimate Children of Astor.” Astor Piazzolla, the extraordinary twentieth-century Argentinian composer and bandoneonist, is a fundamental forefather for Alejandro, whose works continue in Piazzolla’s footsteps as we can appreciate in the magnificent forms of Alejandro’s first two albums.Continue reading

“Astor’s illegitimate children” see themselves as both, a traditional and a contemporary orchestra. Bandoneonist-composer-arranger Alejandro Fasanini, composer of all songs, said that his “music tries to continue the path that Astor Piazzolla left”.Continue reading

The soul of theTango between Argentina and Europe – Meeting with Alejandro Fasanini of Federica Nardacci. New Trends magazine

 

It is not easy to define artistically Alejandro Fasanini. His multi-facetedness, his many interests make him a complex artist, who communicates, however, simplicity and naturalness. His classical music training at the Conservatory of Buenos Aires, his studies of composition, instrumentation, the study of saxophone, guitar and bandoneón are alongside the literary interests that led him to found a publishing house in the past and a Literary magazine “El Poeta”.Continue reading

Alejandro Fasanini
The “Hijos ilegítimos de Astor”
Contemporary Tango Trilogy

An unusual history follows the Astor orchestra’s illegitimate children in the original scorse of “Contemporary Tango Trilogy” the argentian composer M° Alejandro Fasanini. The vision of Buenos Aires – that is not the same city as in the past, but is still beating deep inside the heart of all of it’s children – and the search of a sonority, loyal to the rhythm of it’s streets but sensitive to the suggestions of contemporary classic music, becoming unique, original and personal this trilogy “Temptation, Intuition, Contemplation”… Something that today we still call Tango.

It is a very rare name for a group, which today already enjoys considerable attention in Europe.
