Quite right Parla!  Could you please give us some MORE knowledge of Astor.  He was a brilliant artist and I absolutely LOVE his music!  Saludos Elly

Gee I found your comments quite insulting and totally unfounded!  Grow up!

Oh dear, "he" has taken on another persona.

How do the staff at the asylum cope?

What do you imply, Troyen? "He" is using now even wrong pictures of some imaginary female unsuspected person? Intriguing!

What do you think?

If this is not our doctor friend in another guise I'll eat your head.

Of course, anything can happen in an internet forum, but I still have my doubts. In any case, we won't find out, unless "he" wishes to betray more features of his persona. (In the meantime, you may spare my "head", since we have no proof).

Piazzolla original solo piano works?

Thanks for the lively discussion of Piazzolla’s place in the musical universe. I see references to “solo piano” works but am unable to locate anything other than transcriptions for piano from other instrumental works.  Did he compose any music specifically for solo piano?  If so, who publishes it?  Thanks for any help from this group of highly knowledgeable Piazzolla enthusiasts/commentators.

Piazzolla for Piano.

PW, as far as I can tell, PIazzolla did not write anything specifically for piano except for a work called "3 Preludes for Piano". Although there have been various Piano CDs with Piazzolla music (most of them out of print, deleted etc. by now), they predominantly dealt with transcriptions of his works for other instruments, instrumental groups, songs etc.

Bit of an old thread, but the spam needs bumping.

Piazzola wrote for the most part in a completely different idiom to the composers we gather here to discuss.

He wrote Le Grand Tango for Rostropovitch, which is a fascinating work I will never be able to play. When I'm in the right mood, I love Piazzola's music.
