Notes & Reviews:

Among Astor Piazzolla's works, the group of guitar compositions is a very significant one, although he did not write for the instrument until the early 1980s. In March 1985, Piazzolla and his old friend Cacho Tirao premiered the Concerto for Bandoneon and Guitar at the Liege Guitar Festival in Belgium, which saw also the premiere of 'Histoire du Tango.' Less than a year later in 1984, Piazzolla had completed his 'Tango Suite.' Because of the wealth of colors, solid formal cohesion, and perfect balance between the instruments, these pieces can be counted among the most important works in the late 20th century guitar repertoire.
