“Five Tango Sensations” by Astor Piazzolla
As we previously mentioned, Piazzolla introduced the most modern version of tango to the world, by leaving behind some aspects of antique tango. “Five Tango Sensations” was a proposal of the composer to Kronos Quartet. Piazzolla observed an actuation of the group and decided to propose them this piece, that since then, it would revolution tango in New York and in the rest of the world.
He was accused of being the assassin of tango, for its transformation and adaptation of the musical style to the new challenges that contemporary music proposed. In 1985, he was called the illustrious citizen of Buenos Aires for versioning and giving a new way to this particular Argentinian music. Moreover, he later obtained other rewards that acknowledge his creativity and musical ear, as Platino Konex Award as the best vanguards of tango in Argentina’s history.
