"TANGOLOGY" is an instrumental work in 11 episodes (about 1 hour long), composed and arranged by Paolo Russo, for the international Ensemble Midtvest (based in Herning, Denmark). It is the story of an imaginary journey, which has as its main character an unusual one: a musical instrument, the bandoneón. And perhaps, more precisely, his soul, his spirit that almost takes human form and begins to walk through an ideal path between dream and the spiritual, between the real and the fantastic, in a continuum of emotions and feelings, in search of its own identity and the reconstruction of its own history. www.emv.dk www.paolorusso.com
