Possibly, he has driven tango beyond its bounds, so far —aesthetically speaking— that many tango players lacked the level either to go along with his trend or to understand it.

Those who did follow him and those who came later, were faced with the heavy burden of solving how to stay away, even though partially, from his influence and to find a new path after his work. Post-piazzollism is up to date a collection of attempts, some of them important but insufficient. His appearance in the Buenos Aires tango environment started in , precisely at the time when tango was fastly awakening out of its relative lethargy which had commenced around Astor Piazzolla 's relationship with that environment was difficult, a mixture of love and despise, admiration and resentment.

Post- Piazzollans no longer wear this mud on their shoes. Nonwithstanding this antagonism, various tangos were written in his homage, one of them by Julio De Caro a, a significant figure in the genre, as testimony of admiration aroused by that rough and fighting individual, who challenged all standards. In he and his parents moved to New York, where in his encounter with the bandoneon took place. Its leader, the violinist Elvino Vardaro , would play many years later with Piazzolla.

That was the extraordinary association of an enormously popular vocalist and a unique talented musician. After that opening experience, Astor launched his own orchestra in , still restricted by the traditional standards of the genre. Among his singers Aldo Campoamor stood out.

Meanwhile, his orchestra recorded between and four pieces, two of them on a remarkable 78 r. In the early 50s Piazzolla hesitated between the bandoneon and the piano, and thought of devoting to classical music on which he had been working as composer. With those ideas in mind he moved to France in , having won a scholarship granted by the Paris Conservatory, but the musicologist Nadia Boulanger persuaded him to develop his art starting from what was more his own: tango and bandoneon.

He recorded there in , with the strings of the Paris Opera Orchestra, Martial Solal on piano and Piazzolla himself on bandoneon, 16 numbers, all his but two. Back in Argentina, Piazzolla would walk in two directions. The orchestra also included the singer Jorge Sobral , because Astor wanted to include the tango with lyrics in his innovative proposal.

The other major enterprise put through by Piazzolla at that time was the creation of the Octeto Buenos Aires, by assembling players of the highest level and with which he subverted all what was known in tango until then.

Some people regard that octet as the artistic zenyth of all his career. In Piazzolla settled in New York, where he lived very hard circumstances. Of that unhappy period is his jazz-tango experiment, which he himself criticized severely —maybe in excess— because of the commercial concession it implied.

But when back in Buenos Aires in he put together another of the essential groups in his career: the Quinteto Nuevo Tango bandoneon, piano, violin, electric guitar and double bass , which aroused a warm enthusiasm in certain types of public, among them, university audiences. In , he returned to a brief Nuevo Octeto, which did not achieve a level as high as the previous octet but it was the vehicle for the introduction of new timbres flute, percussion, voice.

Among the diverse realizations of those intensive years, two events happened in outstand. Furthermore he recorded in Buenos Aires a series of exceptional compositions of his after poems and texts by Jorge Luis Borges about his mythology of knife fighters from the outskirts of town , with the singer Edmundo Rivero and the actor Luis Medina Castro. That year he recorded them with his female singer Amelita Baltar and also with the singer Roberto Goyeneche.

Three years later he composed and recorded with an orchestra a series of pieces in allusion to the World Soccer Championship, then held in Argentina, during the bloodthirsty military dictatorship established in , which politically handled this tournament.

It was a deplorable faux pas by Piazzolla. Among other varied performances, a magnificent recital by the quintet in in New York's Central Park was committed to record. Besides concerto pieces and soundtracks for about 40 movies, Astor devised a great number of short pieces whether tangos or not omitted in this brief review. To dive in Piazzolla's huge work, to find sheet music, scores and arrangements or devise new ones is the fascinating task of musicians all over the world today.
