It has been said that you can see Buenos Aires while listening to Astor Piazzolla's music. This is one of his talents that sets him apart from other composers. Piazzolla made a revolution with the tango, which created many problems for him in his country (traditionalists did not accept his music as tango). But everybody finally accepted his changes because his music put the Argentine dance, the tango, at the highest level.
Verano Porteno (Summer of Buenos Aires) is the first of four tangos that Piazzolla wrote about the seasons of Buenos Aires..
