Vaults: Astor Piazzolla

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

This month we’re revisiting classic shows, and have left no corner of the closet unchecked. For this 1991 New Sounds From the Vaults, we bring you the king of the neuvo tango himself, the late Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla. He peppers us with mafia references, talks about the origins of the bandoneon, and presents music from the then-brand new release of “La Camorra.” Also, guitar duo music by pickers John Renbourn & Stefan Grossman.
