  • September 21, 2008 Great Value

    I had been looking for Piazzolla for violin and guitar for a long time when I found this. With so many great pieces this is fantastic value. Buy two so your violinist has their own copy. Easy page turns. Only short coming is the lack of fingering notes but given...

    it is for advanced players shouldn't be a major issue.

  • May 06, 2008 A great combination: Piazzolla, Violin and guitar.

    If you like Astor Piazzolla, this is the book for you. Some of Piazzolla's most famous works ... of course, it opens with Adios Nonino, his musical elegy to his father. It is not easy, the rhythms are difficult and the guitar part is a challenge, but with practice it...

    is well worth it. It is not often the violin and guitar can be brought together in such a culturally appropriate way. The problem is finding a proficient guitarist who can handle some of the most difficult arrangements. It is tango at its best. I have played violin for over 45 years and found these works a challenge.

  • December 26, 2007 Feeling for tango is essential

    Extensive collection of Tangos (36!), with different levels of difficulty. The transcriptions for violin are not always easy to interpret. Great fun to play, once you get the feeling! You need to be a Piazzola fan, if you want to enjoy playing his music, or get the feeling for it...

  • September 19, 2007 Tanguero but something we can aspire to.

    As I am completing a doctorate on tango music interpretation these tangos are an invaluable reference for me in respect of Piazzolla's contribution to tango music, displaying the myriad inflections that we have come to expect of the master. Nicely produced copy, easy to read and a good basis...

    for further arranging or expanding!
