Ten magnificent tangos and other characteristic pieces by the Argentinian master of tango nuevo, skillfully arranged for Guitar by James Crabb, and now appearing in print for the first time.
Intended for intermediate players, these are idiomatic versions of this beautiful and compelling music, based on Piazzolla's own recordings with his quintet and other ensembles. The volume includes Vuelvo al sur and Los sueños from the soundtrack to the film Sur (Fernando Solanas) and extracts from the incidental music to El sueño de una noche de verano (A Midsummer Night's Dream).
