Virtuoso duo Sándor Rigó and Christina Leeb-Grill have taken Jean Françaix's description of his own work, 'musique pour faire plaisir', as the motto for this programme. Dance styles and rhythms are at the heart of this repertoire, from the spectacular Brazileira with which Milhaud concludes his theatrical Scaramouche, through Piazzolla's refinement of tradition in his Tango-Études, to the Brazilian rhythms showcased in Villa-Lobos's Fantasia. Paquito D'Rivera adapted his Invitación al Danzón especially for this recording, providing Sándor Rigó with space to demonstrate his brilliance in improvisation.
