“Alejandro Fasanini, who can be defined as one of the most important tango musicians of our time. This is the Tango Orchestra of the new century.
With a series of masterpieces, this album is the true evolution of Tango. ”

I believe that such compositions can be interpreted by imagination, by our ability to dream.
The formation’s name of the bandoneonist and composer Alejandro Fasanini means
“The illegitimate children of Astor” … but I’m tempted to say, with respect to their name, that they are both legitimate and illegitimate.
France – Magazine “La salida” – Bernardo Nudelman
“If Piazzolla were still alive, his music would now probably be very similar to what we hear in this beautiful work by the “Hijos ilegitimos de Astor” Orchestra.
A name that is not random and, in our opinion, more than appropriate to describe in three words their music”
Italy – Magazine “El Tanguero” – Andrea Dedó
“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.”
Argentina- Review, Monica Martín
“It is a marvelous work that develops a style under the influence of Piazzolla”.
