Astor Piazzolla

A precursor and the main figurehead of avant-garde tango, Astor Piazzolla, even if his critics refuse to admit it, never played anything but the tango - "the popular, contemporary style of music from Buenos Aires" as he defined it. Passionate and irreverent, Piazzolla breathed new life into the form and made it respectable. Louder than ever, his battle-cry lives on: “Libertango”!
