It has been said that you can see Buenos Aires while listening to 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. In creating this work, Piazolla put together two words that he was in love with - liberty and tango: Libertango.
