Monday’s Music Box: Astor Piazzola

One of my all-time favorite musicians and composers, playing a piece for orchestra and bandoneón that he composed for his father.

(Though to be honest, I prefer his smaller ensemble work–call it “Chamber Tango”)

If you were not already familiar with his music, let this be your introduction (and possibly a preview of next Sunday’s Soundtrack for Surfing….)

He elevated Tango to a whole new level.
