    I can't see the video you've linked to in my country, but most of the albums issued my Milan Music are great: Adiós Nonino, Vuelvo al Sur, Muerte del Ángel, Suite del Ángel, Libertango, Tango Zero Hour, Hommage à Liège and so on. And then other gems such as Live at Cine Teatro Gran Rex de Buenos Aires 1981, the original soundtrack of the film Sur, the albums with the great tango singer Roberto Goyeneche or the tango-opera María de Buenos Aires.

    Not sure what your link is.

    But some Piazzolla recordings I like include the ones by Gidon Kremer, especially Maria de Buenos Aires. He's put out four or five, but one is a collection of previous recordings.

    As far as Piazzolla himself, the three "Concerts" recordings are great, but Libertango is a nice single CD collection.

    Great Vivaldi, great Piazzolla from Gidon Kremer and his band. Highly recommended.

    This is the most amazing Piazzolla recording I have and I'm a huge Piazzolla fan with more than a dozen CDs.

    To me there are at least two "Piazzollas". The "authenctic" neo-tango musician, who renewed traditional music remaining always true to his roots -even if he studied with Nadie Boulanger and adored jazz music- and the "Classical Piazzolla", played my classical musicians and orchestras. Not that they aren't compatible, but it's a totally different approach, as classical musicians don't improvise and Piazzolla did constantly.

    Listening Piazzolla playing with "Troilo", Horacio Ferrer or Roberto Goyeneche or Adriana Varela or his music played by "Cuarteto Cedrón" has little or nothing to do with the album you linked to.

    I enjoy both approaches. I'm not writing this as an attack to anything. On the contrary, I'd like to expand the sometimes incomplete view or Piazzolla the musician, so that he can be enjoyed in all his greatness!

    Yes I have that and love it. That recording of the Piazzolla/Desyatnikov version of the Seasons is the best IMO.

    Al Di Meola with Dino Saluzzi. Check out Tango Suite 1 & 2 from Al's World Sinfonia CD.
