Eternal Piazzolla kicks off with a vigorous work, “Michelangelo 70,” which I like to open
my concerts as well, and ends with “Adiós Nonino,” a breathtaking work which Astor wrote in memory of his father, Vicente “Nonino” Piazzolla. It features a piano solo by Pablo Ziegler, the leading exponent of Nuevo Tango who was Astor Piazzolla's pianist from 1978 to 1989.
I explored different aspects of his music by including two Piazzolla compositions, “Zum” and “Verano Porteño,” arranged in traditional “Orquesta Típica” style. I also included Pablo Ziegler's “Astor Place,” which he composed as he was walking with Astor while searching
for Piazzolla's old house on the lower East Side of Manhattan. There are seldom-heard works such as a bandoneón solo “Pedro y Pedro,” “Bandoneón, Guitarra y Bajo,” with guest guitarist Quique Sinesi, and “Kicho” featuring bassist Pedro Giraudo.
