Liner Notes

Ideas for the work go back as early as December, 1990 shortly after finishing the soundtrack project for “Mimesis 90”. The actual start began in the spring of 1991. Throughout an intense and contemplated period, including a creative slump, “A Tango in Venice” finally reached its completion in March, 1992.

“The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals”, wrote Shakespeare, a sentiment that seems to echo throughout this love story which has both romantic and symbolic meanings. The man, the woman and Venice are all elements of symbolism for the love of the earth and humanity. While Venice remains one of the most beautiful and romantic cites on earth, it is sinking and seems uncertain of its existence in years to come. Meanwhile, a beautiful thing happens here when two people from different continents meet and discover a passionate and loving world but knowing there is an end. This particular story, however, has no ending but a development into the next level of life and finding inner peace.
