Radio 3 Astor Piazzolla tangos on box
« on: March 19, 2019, 12:36:50 PM »

composer of the week  Astor Pantaleón Piazzolla (Spanish pronunciation: [pjaˈsola], Italian pronunciation: [pjatˈtsɔlla]; March 11, 1921 – July 4, 1992) was an Argentine tango composer, bandoneon player, and arranger. His oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. A virtuoso bandoneonist, he regularly performed his own compositions with a variety of ensembles.

The mix of influences and blending remind me of a few current players, Tim Edey for one. Joyful fun with at times a simmer of sadness, reeds really rewarding repeated renditions.....

I remember Johnny Morris, the late BBC presenter and raconteur did a series of radio programmes from various exotic locations.  One of these was from Buenos Aires, the home of the tango.  I remember his description of tango music as being full of pain, misery, and damn bad luck.

Made oi larf.
