Classical guitar and flute duet. For the intermediate guitar player who is comfortable with chords. Two full scores included. Standard notation. The arranger's notes tell us: "Libertango stands for the freedom which I allow for my musicians. Their limits are defined solely by the extent of their own capabilities and not through any exterior pressure, like Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla wrote the Libertango for his Octeto Nuevo de Buenos Aires which he formed after returning from Paris in 1954 'determined more than ever before to treat the tango as music.' An absolute music, based on the melodic, harmonic, and above all, the rhythmical qualities of the tango, frees it from the socially defined context of its origins at the beginning of this century.".
Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina. He studied piano, but showed exceptional talent on the bandoneon, a concertina-like instrument. He is known today as one of the most important composers in the traditional Argentinian styles such as the tango. He wrote for quintet, octet, chamber orchestra, and film, as well as guitar. Piazzolla is popularly known as the ''King of the Tango'', having infused the tango with new rhythmic and harmonic qualities which have adapted well to the guitar.
