Histoire du Tango

Vincenzo Iormetti and Sara Wazani

Astor Piazolla, the foremost composer and ambassador of tango music, carried the signature sound of Argentina to clubs and concert halls around the world. Histoire du Tango, (originally written for flute and guitar), attempts to convey the history and evolution of the tango. The first movement is full of grace and liveliness, the second more musical, and more romantic, the third tango evolves again as Brazil and Argentina come together and bossa nova is infused into the new tango form.
