Saluzzi and Lechner: "From the heart"

Posted by T. Ballard Lesemann on Tue, May 29, 2007 at 9:25 AM


Monday afternoon’s Wachovia Jazz concert at the Sottile (May 28 at 5 p.m.) featured the elegant bandoneón/cello duo of Dino Saluzzi, a charming, 71-year-old Argentine bandoneón player, and Anja Lechner, a seriously talented, young German cellist known best for her work with the Rosamunde Quartet, in an intense program of pieces off of the their

newly-released collection, Ojos Negros (on the Munich label ECM Records). “This is music from the heart,” exclaimed Saluzzi. Indeed.

P&C's Jack McCray enjoyed the chamber music feel, despite the lack of "swing."

Was it jazz, or classical, or folk, or world … does it matter? Check out a full live review of this and all of this year’s Wachovia Jazz concerts on City Paper’s web coverage of the jazz, blues, and roots music events (here).
