AllMusic Review by

This three-disc CD presents over two hours of Piazzolla's nuevo tango, but unfortunately with no notes to put these recordings into the context of his long career. Bandoneon virtuoso Piazzolla's compositional extravagance and superb playing created a new genre out of the rich sounds of tango. This collection is an excellent overview of pieces with vocals, as well as instrumentals, and it serves as a thorough introduction to the rich world of Piazzolla's music.
