Palmeri: Misa a Buenos Aires, “Misatango” – Credo
Many works by the Argentinian composer Martín Palmeri owe their inspiration to the tango Nuevo style, both in terms of form and harmony. This includes his tango mass, Misa a Buenos Aires, composed in 1996 and scored for mezzo soprano, choir, bandoneon, piano and strings. The combination of distinct traditions—ancient Latin liturgical texts and the everyday music of Palmeri’s homeland—results in a highly colourful case of old wine in new bottles.
