From the Foreword:
The first decades in the development of the tango - from the 1890s to the 1930s - brought forth some of the greatest pieces ever written in this genre. They were made popular by the successful tango formations lead, among others, by Carlos Gardel, Francisco Canaro and Julio de Caro and today, they are still immortal classics of their kind. Although piano versions of the pieces were already published in those early days, anyone who ever played the music from one of those editions will have been disappointed to hear how little it sounded like tango - not that any tango musician would ever have dreamed of playing the pieces exactly as they were written down. Instead, the printed music indicates the basic framework, which consists of melodies, counterparts and harmonies from which the experienced player creates his personal version by determining the rhythm of accompaniment and melody, adding ornaments and variations, altering the repeats and reprises and even composing entire new passages.
Therefore, these versions by the tango pianist Juan María Solare, which he has played in countless concerts from Istanbul to London, represent a glance over the shoulder of a modern master. At the same time, they enable a musician who is less familiar with the quirks of this style to play these tango classics in a manner which sounds absolutely authentic.
