Piazzolla sipped classical music and distilled it in tango. He achieved that tango maintained its musical identity while expanding its second person plural. This process is directly linked to:. Astor Piazzolla has composed tangos, a popular music since its inception, and within the tango he has continued even in his most irrigated productions of academic refinements, traditional or transgressive, and also for his typical jazz flexibility.

The peculiarity of his foray into other repertoires, especially into the classical one, was that in addition to the technical sophistication and the novelties that these music styles brought to tango, it allowed Astor to expand and to renew the tango music. These fruitful classical and jazz influences, while creating the Tango Partturas New Tangorejuvenated the tango at the compositional and interpretive levels thus preventing tango of becoming restricted to something sealed, stuck in the past, turned into folklore — something that would end up restricting to a museum stuff.

The culture that might have been photographed in sepia — a photograph technique that would be favored by the well-known nostalgic inclination of the gifted Argentinian people — moved forward like a real plot, without the lenity of agents delimitable beforehand, and so it will resist while there is a tanguero who pratituras to accept that the tango history concludes in an endless ritornello.

Partitiras just need to pay attention behind the fuzzy elements in which this composition is embedded to perceive that this music definitely is a tango. After Piazzolla a tango also can: This massive aesthetic dilation came — perhaps the only way it could have come — by the influence of classical music.

Eliot points in the essay Tradition and Individual Talenttrue artists belong to the future because they are guardians of the past; they are not antagonists of the tradition but the last defenders of it — kind of a conservative salvaguardaas some marxists would argue. The mentioned process occurred amid social and musical tensions, as we would expect to be on the Buenos Aires side of the force. As Nicolas Sosa Baccarelli affirmed in El tango: Supposedly Piazzolla was not Argentinian enough.

Presumably, these are some of the vicissitudes that influenced the way Piazzolla wrote and played tango. Nowadays, this dim perception is almost gone. Grout and Claude V. Partityras the midth to the middle of the 18th century Italy was the most influential country in Europe in the musical field.

Concerto, the musical formcomes from the Italian Baroque.

A soloist concerto solista or group of soloists concerto grosso dialogues and challenges a larger group that accompanies it. This group, in the case of partitras concerto grosso [gross concert], is called ripieno the filling. In the 20th century, many concerts were composed for orchestra.

Astor also composed the Concerto for Quintetwhich follows the common hrazil in the 20th century and ever since of a concert for orchestra, an incipient idea in concert of the Baroque that alternated tutti and soli, as the third movement of the Concerto alla Rustica by Vivaldi. In first place a musical form, concerto also means a social activity, the social event whose name is simply concert or classical concert, if you will.

Concert is a word whose etymology, despite not absolute, seems to have been born of the Latin words conserere to meet, to participate, to join and certamen competition, dispute, fight.

The Baroque era is the base and a landmark of the beginning of the music that would reign for the next three centuries. Piazzolla should be understood a music maker of the Baroque era — claims Alejandro Marcelo Drago in Instrumental tango idioms in partitura symphonic works and orchestral arrangements of Astor Piazzolla … — meaning that Astor played, composed, organized and orchestrated, thus merging these activities as a Baroque era musician would merge them.


Among the similarities of the works of Piazzolla with those of the Baroque era are: Please listen to this Vivaldi Concerto for 4 violinsand you will notice a very Italian and energetic ethos present in the ensembles that Piazzolla led. Still about those mentioned similarities, Piazzolla phrasing flexibility stands out.

Considering his life, his typical relaxed partituas should be credited more to the Baroque style than to jazz. Etohs tango-song tradition, with its emphasis on the lyrics also echoes brxzil aspect. In fact, the dramatic musical operetta, a genre Piazzolla clearly appreciated, comes from the Baroque. Being more accurate, it comes from before the Baroque.

Piazzolla collaborated in many famous works with the Uruguayan poet Horacio Ferrer. In addition to the phrasal freedoms, i. By fugue I mean voices imitating others while chasing themselves, like a mirrored fugue.

And by voices I mean melody lines not only the sing. The main consequence of using this compositional technique, the Fugue, is to restrict the amount of people capable of dancing to the music using that technique. Besides professional dancers and dancers capable of avant-garde dances, not many amateurs are able to dance it.

Speaking about melodies, from the Italian Baroque Piazzolla also inherited the taste for melodic virtuosity and implicit polyphony. The harmonic rhythm of tango is often slowly, but it is commonly accelerated in some passages known as the Circle of Fifthsas it happens in the middle of the first movement of the Winter, from The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi. It is another idea we can find in Baroque even if it is not exclusive to that period that remains present in tango and it is characteristic to it.

A descending chromatic progression, pronounced by the double bass and accompanied by the piano, is used to evoke a wail feeling — a lamentthe same way the Baroque basso lamento evokes it. The basso lamento also arrives to Bossa Nova and to Brazilian popular songs alike, the precisely subject studied and exemplified by music critic Alex Ross in Bossa Nova, basso lamento.

Usually tangueros use a special harmony known as Augmented Sixth as a harmonic function named secondary Dominantespecially in its called Neapolitan form — which it is another clear influence of Italian opera that sounds a typical tango harmony progression. The typical compositional texture of tango is a melody with an accompanimentsomething that can be described as a drawing over a background.

Melody with an accompaniment is also the texture of most of the popular music and the typical texture of the Classic and Romantic periods. Who tweaked this trend in tango, influenced by the Baroque, was Piazzolla, by inserting intricate, interdependent voices. Usually, in the instrumental narrative, violins and bandoneons carry the melody, while piano and acoustic contrabass provide the harmonic and rhythmic accompaniment. In Baroque, mostly of this sort of melodies are composed meaning that they were actually written ; regarding to the harmonic complementation an improvised mood.

Those melodies are called basso continuo in English, is also called figured bass. Please listen to this demonstrationis fun and self-explanatory.

Piazzolla seems to have learned from Giovanni Battista Draghi, Pergolesi the man himself. Compare the basso continuo of his bazil and beautiful Stabat Matercomposed in his last year of life, with Michelangelo 70 by Piazzolla: Another detail to note in Stabat Partituraz Bass lines are also a point somewhere in the middle of the triangle formed by tango, baroque and jazz vertices.

In this case, we are talking about the famous Walking Bass: One of the ways classical composers use to highlight more the harmonic filling than the bass line is transforming the bass line into what is called basso ostinato obstinate bass. Piazzolla did a few times. To a better understanding of what we are talking about here, please pay attention to the loop played by the acoustic bass in the partitiras of Sur: Return to Love ].

Piazzolla also also made program musica type of musical composition we can refer to it as a descriptive one, whose most famous example is the Baroque suite The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi. Other erudite composers made such music, especially those of Romanticism, a period in which the relevance of this sort etho music has increased so much that it has become an autonomous genre. We are referring to a type of music with extra-musical appeals, which evokes things generally considered non-musical in a strict, narrow sense — it is something evocative, descriptive, something almost narrative, almost a verbal justification to the music.


Please notice in partiturass how the subpart titles bring something beyond the musical aspect: Friends surround him and try to dissuade him from marching ; They explain to him the dangers he can encounter ; The lament of friends ; As you can not be dissuaded, say goodbye to him ; etc.

The following songs by Piazzolla also are examples of music with program, a program music: We are the descendants of a partiturae encounter.

Natural children of nostalgia and heaping, the immigrant defrauded and displaced by wars, and the criollo affected by wire fences, the Bible and the law; that is, the immigrant. We came from this group, from this struggle. In the midth century Argentina received a new wave of immigration. These emigres, living among people who already lived in Argentina, began to have a sense of national identification and, of course, they started to have their own social crops — in other words, their own mixed culture, a modified new Argentinian culture.

These new immigrant wave was mainly of Italians. It had its peak between the end of the Paraguayan War and the beginning of World War I, when the Argentine population goes from representing 0. Also many European Jews emigrated to Argentina. A considerable number of them were musicians who found in the incipient tango activities a way of make money, in the same way as the tanos did it.

Some preserved their surnames, others became or mingled with criollo words, there were even those who made them French, but they always kept on playing, writing and dancing during the tango course of the century. A look at the tango names is like watching an italian football match or soccer match, as our Americans and Australians mates would say: His father appreciated the tango of Gardel and De Caro, and he bought a bandoneon for the infant Astor when he was 8 years old.

Inat 13, Piazzolla had the privileged opportunity to meet and work with the mythical Carlos Gardel, who was filming in New York city. Wendland in Tracing Tangueros. Julio Nudler, in Astor Piazzolla: El Gordo [The Fat One], quickly impressed by the year-old who knew the whole repertoire of the orchestra with no need to read sheet music, gave him a permanent seat in the famous ensemble.

It was during this period that Piazzolla was caught by classical music, an interest inspired by his admiration for the great Polish pianist Arthur Rubinstein. Inat age 20, as a result of the enchantment of partitudas music, Piazzolla sought formal musical instruction. He began his remarkable six years of composition hrazil with the remarkable Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera to whom Astor attributes much of the substance of his musical partuturas, especially in what concerns orchestration techniques: I had to understand the orchestra [as a music organism], and started composing string quartets for tango groups.

The Parisian periodin addition to the in-depth study of technical issues of classical music, was important for Piazzolla both for his contact with European erudite avant-garde composers and for the affirmation of his tango identity.

It remained for the story that after Boulanger and Piazzolla were lost by countless scores, she asked him to play Argentine music. I liked very much. This is the real Piazzolla! The so-called post-French revolution was received with reservations by the Argentine public: It was like conversion to another religion. Researchers Link and Wendland explain that Piazzolla, hoping to achieve better success, relocated his family to New York pxrtituras Among his groups, the Quinteto Tango Nuevo was the one who lasted the longest.

This band, now referred to as Primero Quinteto [The First Quintet], displayed the most typical tango quinteto: If in the s Piazzolla went deep down into classical music, the s were the years of jazz experimentalism. InPiazzolla formed another experimental group, the Electronic Octet.
