The affections of baroque music are likened to the affections of the Tango in this skillfully performed programme and presented side-by-side these musics display many parallels, both structural and emotive. 

Happily, Monteverdi’s music survives recasting in Piazzolla’s style and demonstrates more plasticity than would other early baroque composers. However in substituting the style of Monteverdi for that of the Tango, we seem to have ended up with a disc of music that begins to sound the same.
