Comments: This is finally the re-issue on CD of the 1965 LP that captured the collaboration between two greats, Astor Piazzolla composing music to texts by Jorge Luis Borges. The music for "El hombre de la esquina rosada - Suite para recitante, canto, y doce instrumentos" had been written originally in 1960 while Piazzolla was in New York on an idea by Argentinian choreographer Ana Itelman, who also adapted texts taken from Borges' "El hombre de la esquina rosada" for this recording.
