Astor PiazzollaIn our podcast interview with Aleksandar Nikolic, he mentions the profound effect that the music of Astor Piazzolla had upon him — enough, in fact, to make him completely change his career path. Piazzolla’s music shows a rich spectrum of influences, from its tango roots, through classical music, electronic music, and jazz — perfectly understandable, when you consider that he had both Anibal Troilo and Nadia Boulanger as mentors. Here is a whirlwind tour through four decades of Piazzolla’s music:

  • Lo Que Vendrá
  • Adiós Nonino
  • Buenos Aires Hora Cero
  • Balada Para Un Loco
  • Alevare (from María de Buenos Aires)
  • Tristezas De Un Doble A
  • Violentango
  • Suite Punta Del Este
  • Prologue (from The Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night)
  • Regreso Al Amor
