I met the five members of the Bolivar Soloists during a recording session with Rolando Villazon and was immediately thrilled by their passion, joy in music-making, musicality, virtuosity and temperament.
Rainer Maillard (Producer of Direct-to-Disc-Recording): The Bolivar Soloists accepted the offer and it was immediately clear to them that for such a unique project they would record works by their revered Astor Piazzolla. Time passed, but at last we arrived at a date for the recording of seven tangos. The whole process of making a direct-to-disc recording is completely different from a usual recording. During our four days together the first day was given over completely to rehearsing. What one played was exactly what would be heard later – nothing more and nothing less. There were no compromises – preparation is everything. (Direct to Disc Recording)
