Astor Piazzolla (1921 – 1992) was a renown tango composer who was born in Argentina. Brass players have long enjoyed performing Piazzolla’s works and Libertango has become standard repertoire for many brass ensembles and quintets. In 2009 the quintet Alberti Brass recorded the album Angel that consisted of only works by Astor Piazzolla.
