It has been the great merit of the Dutch dancer/choreographer Hans van Manen (1932) that he managed to bring Piazzolla’s music under the attention in the Netherlands. Like in a ‘suite’ he combined these five pieces for his ballet ‘5 Tangos’ (1977), which got praising reviews and by which the name Piazzolla became famous in the Netherlands.In 1998 the Sexteto Canyengue accompanied this choreography for the first time.We have the music obtainable on cd.
