Histoire du tango (1991), Astor Piazzolla

With the tangos of Astor Piazzolla, as in the Baroque period, the dance becomes a genre to be listened to. With L'Histoire du Tango, originally composed for flute and guitar, the composer traces a century of the evolution of the form, from the light-hearted Bordel 1900, the romantic lyricism of Cafe 1930, the energy of the new tango and the bossa nova in Nightclub 1960, to a flirtation with the harmonies of Stravinsky and Bartók (and also jazz) in the Concert d' aujourd'hui.
