The centenary of the birth of Astor Piazzolla in 2121 has been significantly disrupted by the health crisis. However, it is never too late to pay tribute to the man who was instrumental in expanding the influence of Argentine tango and its traditions. So, here he is for this anniversary, surrounded by his peers: Villa-Lobos, his great Brazilian predecessor, who like him studied under Nadia Boulanger in Paris; His teacher from Buenos Aires Alberto Ginestra, and his friend, the cellist from his ensemble, José Bragato. In addition to them, as an unexpected, surprise guest, there is the one to whom he showed boundless admiration throughout his life, namely, Béla Bartók, who for him represented the model of a creative and fulfilling dialogue between classical and popular music. More than a brilliant bandoneonist he was the composer of a universal music which far exceeded the instrument that Adriana Gonzales, Helio Vida and the Stanislas Quartet have chosen to celebrate with love and originality.
