In Astor Piazzolla formed his second Quintet, with which he would tour the world for 11 years, and would make him world-renowned. He also returned to writing chamber music and symphonic works. During the period of Argentine military dictatorship from to , Piazzolla lived in Italy, but returned many times to Argentina, recorded there, and on at least one occasion had lunch with the dictator Jorge Rafael Videla.
However, his relationship with the dictator might have been less than friendly, as recounted in Astor Piazzolla, A Manera de memorias a comprehensive collection of interviews, constituting a memoir :. Why did you accept that invitation? What invitation? They sent a couple of guys in black suits and a letter with my name on it that said that Videla expected me a particular day in a particular place.
That same year he wrote Le Grand Tango for cello and piano, dedicated to Russian cellist, Mstislav Rostropovich which would be premiered by him in in New Orleans. In , Astor Piazzolla entered the studio with his quintet and American producer Kip Hanrahan and recorded what he considered the finest album of his career, Tango: Zero Hour. The following year Piazzolla took music lessons with the Hungarian classical pianist Bela Wilda, a student of Rachmaninoff , who taught him to play Bach on his bandoneon.
Much to Piazzolla's dismay, his father decided that he was not old enough to go along. This early disappointment of not being allowed to join the tour proved to be a blessing in disguise, as it was on this tour that Gardel and his entire orchestra perished in a plane crash in In later years, Piazzolla made light of this near miss, joking that had his father not been so careful, he would now be playing the harp, rather than the bandoneon.
By he was earning a good wage, enough to pay for music lessons with Alberto Ginastera , an eminent Argentine composer of classical music. During his five years of study with Ginastera he mastered orchestration, which he later considered to be one of his strong points. As time went by Troilo began to fear that the advanced musical ideas of the young bandoneonist might undermine the style of his orchestra and make it less appealing to dancers of tango.
Tensions mounted between the two bandoneonists until, in , Piazzolla announced his intention to leave Troilo and join the orchestra of the tango singer and bandoneonist Francisco Fiorentino. Piazzolla would lead Fiorentino's orchestra until and make many recordings with him, including his first two instrumental tangos, La chiflada and Color de rosa. Having disbanded his first orchestra in he almost abandoned tango altogether as he continued to study Bartok and Stravinsky and orchestra direction with Hermann Scherchen.
He spent a lot of time listening to jazz and searching for a musical style of his own beyond the realms of tango. He decided to drop the bandoneon and to dedicate himself to writing and to studying music. The performance took place at the Law School in Buenos Aires with the symphony orchestra of Radio del Estado under the direction of Sevitzky himself. At the end of the concert a fight broke out among some members of the audience who were offended by the inclusion of two bandoneons in a traditional symphony orchestra.
In spite of this Piazzolla's composition won a grant from the French government to study in Paris with the legendary French composition teacher Nadia Boulanger at the Fontainebleau conservatory. In he and his wife left their two children Diana aged 11 and Daniel aged 10 behind with Piazzolla's parents and travelled to Paris.
At this stage in his life Piazzolla was tired of tango and at first, he tried to hide his tanguero past and his bandoneon compositions from Boulanger, thinking that his destiny lay in classical music. By way of introduction to his work, Piazzolla played her a number of his classically-inspired compositions but it was not until he finally played his tango Triunfal that she immediately congratulated him and encouraged him to pursue his career in tango, recognising that this was where his true musical talent lay.
This was to prove a historic encounter and a cross-road in Piazzolla's career. During his time with Boulanger he studied classical composition including counterpoint which was to play a key role in his later tango compositions. Before leaving Paris he heard, and was deeply impressed by, the octet of the American jazz saxophonist Gerry Mulligan , which was to give him the idea of forming his own octet on his return to Buenos Aires.
At this time he composed and recorded a series of tangos with the String Orchestra of the Paris Opera and began to play the bandoneon while standing up, putting his right foot on a chair and the bellows of the instrument across his right thigh.
Until that time bandoneonists played sitting down. This was to be a turning point in his career and a watershed in the history of tango. Piazzolla's new approach to the tango, nuevo tango , made him a controversial figure in his native land both musically and politically. The following year he wrote Balada para un loco with lyrics by Ferrer which was premiered at the First Iberoamerican Music Festival with Amelita Baltar and Piazzolla himself conducting the orchestra.
Piazzolla was awarded second prize and the composition would prove to be his first popular success. Back in Buenos Aires he founded his Conjunto 9 a. Nonet , a chamber music formation, which was a realisation of a dream for Piazzolla and for which he composed some of his most sophisticated music.
He now put aside his first Quinteto and made several recordings with his new ensemble in Italy. After a period of great productivity as a composer, he suffered a heart attack in and that same year he moved to Italy where he began a series of recordings which would span a period of five years. The music publisher Aldo Pagani, a partner in Curci-Pagani Music, had offered Piazzolla a year contract in Rome to record anything he could write.
The album includes the composition Aire de Buenos Aires by Mulligan. At this time Piazzolla started a collaboration with the singer Jose A. Trelles with whom he made a number of recordings. In he formed his second Quintet, with which he would tour the world for 11 years, and would make him world-renowned. He also returned to writing chamber music and symphonic works. During the period of Argentine military dictatorship from to , Piazzolla lived in Italy, but returned many times to Argentina, recorded there, and on at least one occasion had lunch with the dictator Jorge Rafael Videla.
However, his relationship with the dictator might have been less than friendly, as recounted in Astor Piazzolla, A manera de memorias a comprehensive collection of interviews, constituting a memoir : . In his family received the Konex Award , as the most important musician of the decade in Argentina.
That same year he wrote Le Grand Tango for cello and piano, dedicated to Russian cellist, Mstislav Rostropovich which would be premiered by him in in New Orleans. At the end of that same year he performed in West-Berlin , and in theater Vredenburg in Utrecht , in the Netherlands, where VPRO -TV-director Theo Uittenbogaard recorded his Quinteto Tango Nuevo, playing, among other pieces, a very moving Adios Nonino , with as a backdrop — to Piazzolla's great pleasure — the extremely zoomed-in "live"' projection of his bandoneon playing.
With the film score for El exilio de Gardel he won the French critics Cesar Award in Paris for best film music in In he wrote music for the film Sur and married the singer and television personality Laura Escalada on April In May that year he recorded his album La Camorra in New York, a suite of three pieces, the last time he would record with the second Quinteto.
During a tour of Japan with Milva he played at a concert at the Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo on June 26, and that same year underwent a quadruple by-pass operation.
Early in he formed his Sexteto Nuevo Tango , his last ensemble, with two bandoneons, piano, electric guitar, bass and cello. Together they gave a concert at the Club Italiano in Buenos Aires in April, a recording of which was issued under the title of Tres minutos con la realidad.
This would be Piazzolla's last concert in Argentina. This would be his last studio recording and was his second composition for the Kronos Quartet. Towards the end of the year he dissolved his sexteto and continued playing solo with classical string quartets and symphonic orchestras.
