Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Astor Piazzolla was one of Argentina's foremost musicians. He played, composed and arranged music in typical tango orchestras, bands and ensembles. Later in his life, he incorporated jazz and classical elements into traditional Argentine tangos to create the nuevo tango style. The three tangos performed today are among his most popular: the title of the first piece, Libertango, shows Piazzolla breaking free from tradition, and is considered to be a quintessential nuevo tango piece. Oblivion was recorded as film music in Italy in 1982 for the film Enrico IV. Finally, Escualo is a musical depiction of the spiny skeleton of a shark, and contains many musical jokes as the style shifts from phrase to phrase. Francesca Anderegg
