About this playlist
Described as "the world's foremost composer of Tango music”, Astor Piazzolla was a bandoneón virtuoso, composer and arranger. Exposed to the worlds of jazz and classical music from an early age, Piazzolla was born in Argentina, spent his childhood in New York and studied in Paris. His varied musical passions led him to experiment with traditional tango music, and he helped to forge a new style entitled "Nuevo tango". 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of this incredible composer's birth, and we created this playlist of his most prominent works to celebrate this special occasion.
