ASTOR PIAZZOLLA 100 YEARS: A LANGUAGE THAT NAVIGATED BETWEEN ITS TRADITIONS AND ITS TRANSFORMATIONS

In the genesis of Piazzolla's work there are undoubtedly different musical sources that shaped its solid formation and may be that diversity explains its musical ecumenism.

However, Astor Piazzolla is an Argentine musician who had clear traces of tango language from his cradle and also in the transgression to certain codes of the tango itself.

Piazzolla was always pointed out as the great renovator of Argentine musical tango, but it would be more adjusted to reality starting from the hypothesis of the aesthetic mobility of a language that navigated between its traditions and its transformations.

In this dialectic, surely our distinguished composer watered in the ways of Cobián, De Caro, Troilo and Salgán, only to point out some unavoidable references.

But the passage from the tango homeland to the universal appropriation of his music, places Piazzolla as a privileged exponent of a musical language that resulted in the listening and approach of his work everywhere in the world, and by interpreters of the most diverse musical formations.

We join these celebrations with a compilation of more than a

hundred performances by argentine artists from different provinces of our country:

We hope that this proposal can always be enriched by

the musical universe of Argentina and the world.
