Astor Piazzolla: Libertango

Books | Piano

Publisher: Faber Music
Composer: Astor Piazzolla
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Argentinean tango composer, Bandoneon player and arranger Astor Piazzolla’s oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed ‘nuevo tango’, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music and new instruments such as the Saxophone and Electric Guitar. The leaner, more fluid musical style with simpler, more continuous forms is exemplified perfectly in Libertango. The title, which merges the words ‘libertad’ (liberty) and ‘tango’, symbolizes Piazzolla's break from classical tango to tango nuevo.

Originally composed for the bandoneon, here Libertango is transcribed for solo Piano by Rossano Sportiello. This fast paced (quarter note = 152) piece by the world's foremost composer of tango music is a guaranteed success with audiences and performers alike!

        product was as advertised,,but too simple a composition for a tango, with no impact, needs two instruments.

        I love this music and I was delighted to receive my copy. The outside cover looks very sophisticated - glossy and with a classy print on the front cover. Inside a nicely laid out copy to read.
