Astor Piazzolla

Astor Piazzolla was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina in 1921, and was educated in New York City until he was 15. Beginning on classical piano, his father gave him a bandonéon when he was 10.

Returning to Buenos Aires, he played in orchestras and composed, adding new elements such as classical, jazz and folk music to the traditional tango. He toured all over the world and became one of the most famous Argentinians.

After a long illness, Piazzolla died at age 71 in 1992.
