Astor Piazzolla, Su Bandoneon y Sus Cuerdas


Artist name used by Astor Piazzolla for his Tango-oriented string ensemble works. It assembled in two occasions: One in France, 1955 and one in Argentina, from 1957 to 1959.
The first formation was an attempt by Piazzolla to introduce Academy music concepts to Tango standards. The second is regarded to have been more commercial.
