Passionate Composer Spotlight: Astor Piazzolla (1921 – 1992, Argentina) shown playing his bandoneón on Primavera (Spring) from "The Four Seasons of Buenos Aries"

So what is a bandoneón and why is it so important to Piazzolla’s tango and nuevo tango? Pronounced “ban·duh·nee·aan,” the first time Piazzolla’s classic composition “Buenos Aires Symphony in Three Movements” was performed in 1950, a fight broke out in the audience. They were outraged that two bandoneón were included in a classical symphony orchestra. The rule of tango has always been "no bandoneón, no tango" because it produces the authentic emotional and nostalgic sound of tango. Piazzolla was forever-more marked as an innovator to express the precious tango and nuevo tango music he loved.
