Astor Piazzolla And His Tango Quintet - Live Lugano


This is an extraordinary album of Piazzolla's music. Discover Astor and his Tango Quintet Piazzolla by Astor Piazzolla released on UHQCD. A close relative to the Accordion and Concertina the Bandoneon became popular in the 1890's in South America due to its perfect compatibility with the rhythm of the 'Tango'. Astor Pantaleón Piazzolla was an Argentine tango composer, bandoneon player, and arranger. His works revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. Astor Piazzolla was one of the greatest Latin American composers ever. He pioneered a new, jazz-infused, dissonant and rhythmically complex tango. He also composed several classical works which incorporate tango elements, among them a tango opera, María de Buenos Aires, a ballet and pieces for orchestra, of which his masterpieces are Four Seasons of Buenos Aires and the Concerto for Bandoneón and Orchestra.
