Product Description:

The incredible life of Argentinean tango composer Astor Piazzolla is explicitly detailed in this absorbing documentary. Piazzolla enlivened the genre by combining his use of a little-known instrument called the bandoneon with an ear for esoteric sounds, leading to him radically altering the traditional template on which tango is based. The footage included here is culled from various archive sources, and spans 30 years of vintage performance from Piazzolla. Illustrating his diverse appeal to a number of musicians from varying backgrounds, artists such as the Kronos Quartet, Yo-Yo Ma, and Gary Burton pay tribute to Piazzolla throughout.
