Yvar Mikhashoff (1941–1993) beauftragte 127 der weltbesten Komponisten für ihn Tangos zu schreiben. Die Pianistin Hanna Shybayeva hat davon 18 einzigartige Tangos, darunter 3 Welt-Ersteinspielungen, für ihre neue CD „TANGOS FOR YVAR“ ausgewählt.

“I was always passionate about listening to tangos – it’s a very specific style of music and dance – and as a musician, you then always want to play that music yourself. I looked for tango compositions that had been originally written for the piano and in the process came across this collection. The pianist Yvar Mikhashoff had commissioned 127 composers to write tangos for him. Almost every conceivable style can be found in this collection. It was a thrilling experience to see how the composers interpreted the concept of the tango and shaped that concept into a musical work.’ Hanna Shybayeva
