Description: This CD covers roughly the 1954-1956 period in which Piazzolla lived in Paris as a student of composition under Nadia Boulanger. This is the period in which classical influences started to strongly flavor his music. He begins experimenting with string arrangements and makes a series of records while in Paris all of which are collected in this CD (at least all the surviving recordings). Most of the compositions (sheet music) from this period have been recently re-issued by Editions Universelles
Style: Piazzolla in Paris (1955)
Comments: Even though the liner notes credit Martial Solal on piano, in all or some of the songs the pianist may be Lalo Schifrin (according to interviews and Piazzolla biographers).
