Exploring Piazzolla's vibrant musical influence around the world, this DVD charts the events of his turbulent, complicated personal and professional life through candid and revealing interviews with Piazzolla himself, his family, friends and the great Argentinian musicians who performed with him. The extended (106 mins) DVD version of Mike Dibb's new film TANGO MAESTRO includes: Rare and exhilarating archive sequences spanning 30 years of filmed performances by Piazzolla's own groups. Contributions from other virtuoso performers drawn to his music, including Daniel Barenboim - a fellow student of Nadia Boulanger, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, jazz vibraphonist Gary Burton, the Kronos Quartet, the Paris-based Gotan Project, the Tango Pasión dance company, British pianist Joanna MacGregor, Scottish accordionist James Crabb, and Astor's close friend Richard Galliano, the French accordionist and bandoneon player. Sequences from award-winning director Fernando Solanas' movies, El Exilio de Gardel and Sur, for which Piazzolla wrote the music. Also on this DVD is Piazzolla's last recorded studio performance TANGO NUEVO (1989, restored and digitally remastered), with six complete Piazzolla classics, such as Milonga del Angel, Zero Hour and Adiós Nonino, illuminated by interviews with the maestro.
