The year 2021 sees the 100th anniversary of   Astor Piazzolla, bandoneon virtuoso and composer, went down in the history of music as an artist successfully combining Argentinian tango, jazz, and classical music in his work.

Piazzolla created a new type of dance, called tango nuevo. The “New Tango” is characterized by an increased lineup of performers and a more varied sound than the previous compositions of this type, it has richer harmonies, more complex counterpoint, and melodies. Las cuatro estaciones porteñas is a four-dance suite, also known as “The Four Seasons in Buenos Aires”. The individual movements were arranged by the composer in an order different than the well-known and popular concertos of Antonio Vivaldi, to which Piazzolla referred in the title of the series: Otoño porteño (“Autumn”), Invierno porteño (“Winter”), Primavera porteña (“Spring”) and Verano porteño (“Summer”).

Le grand tango is a composition created in 1982, originally intended for cello and piano. This is one of the works representing Piazzolla’s tango nuevo trend, combining elements tango with jazz. Oblivion and Libertango are also very popular, full of energy and temperament.
