Comments: The opera, 'operita tango' as was originally called, Maria de Buenos Aires is arguably Piazzolla's masterpiece. Written on a libretto by Horacio Ferrer, it has been released in several versions including highlights and instrumental pieces. This double CD contains the original and complete version as recorded in the studio and released in 1968 (the live version as premiered by Piazzolla/Ferrer in Buenos Aires apparently contained two more compositions which were never recorded or released). Originally it was LP Trova TL-20/2.
The Trova re-issue as CD is Trova CD 5013 & 5014, 1993, Argentina.
