Astoresque is an original new composition for the classical guitar. It’s an homage to Astor Piazzolla, the great Argentinian composer. His music remains as full of fire and spirit as the moment it was written.
Piazzolla was a virtuoso of the bandoneón, an accordion-like instrument pictured above, but this piece is for guitar, which I feel suits the mood and mode of expression very well. Piazzolla’s original compositions and arrangements for guitar are usually very demanding to play, and some are extremely difficult: in contrast, Astoresque is more manageable, if not altogether easy.
I hope you enjoy listening to and playing this piece!
