Program Notes

One of Piazzolla's most popular works, Libertango (1973), has been arranged for countless instruments and combinations. Piazzolla said, “Libertango stands for the freedom which I allow for my musicians. Their limits are defined solely by the extent of their own capabilities and not through any exterior pressure.” Written for his Octeto Nuevo de Buenos Aires, the piece represents a leaner, more fluid musical style, based on the inherent musical qualities of the tango, “liberated” from the social context of its origins.
