The Tango that I am finding the most on the piano is "El Choclo", so you may be able to find a good arrangement. This particular one was again arranged by the pianist.

That's an amazing performance - thanks for posting it. I think the pianist added some of his own embellishments to good effect. The performance hall in Riga is to die for - makes me want to travel to Latvia.

IMHO nothing beats the accordion in conveying all the emotions in the melody line of this particular tango:

If it brings water to your eyes, then you know that you can hear it.

I never realized the accordion could be so beautiful before discovering Piazzolla and now I am addicted. I have started adding his tangos arranged for piano to my repertoire and music library because of hearing his originals on the accordion.. I never tire of him.

This one contains the first piano piece that ever really mesmerized me. It is a solo that begins around the 4:15 mark. When I was an undergraduate at the University of Missouri, I still had to drive back to St. Louis on the weekends to play for my soccer team. Every Sunday night, around 7pm or so, just as I would be driving west across the St. Charles bridge, KSHE-95 would cue this one up. 15 minutes later, I would regain my senses, at or near Wentzville (20 miles or so down the highway), doing anywhere from 100-110 mph. shocked

If ever a piece of music needed to be banned from the airwaves, it was this one. laugh

So pull over, take your keys out of the ignition, and enjoy!
