Astor Piazzolla is the sole creator of the new musical style Nuevo tango, which blends the traditional form of tango, (born out of the red-light district of Buenos Aires), with elements of jazz and classical music.
Piazzolla’s compositions have been featured in over 50 movies. Uniquely, his music has been performed by some of the greatest pop musicians, jazz players, and classical instrumentalists, including Itzhak Perlman, Mstislav Roztropovitch, and Yo-Yo Ma.
Spanish virtuoso pianist, conductor and composer, Isaac Albéniz is best known for piano works based on Spanish folk music idioms. Transcriptions of many of his pieces, such as Asturias, Granada, Sevilla and Malagueña, are important pieces for classical guitar.
