Comments: Part of a series of re-issues produced in Italy (manufactured in Portugal) - also issued as Suite Punta del Este - Theme from the Movie 12 Monkeys (ans Records ANS 12007-2, 1996, USA).
The first five songs were recorded live in Milan in 1984 with the quintet. Suite Punta del Este was recorded live in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1982, A. Piazzolla: bandoneon and the Caracas Chamber Orchestra (this is the only version I know of in which Piazzolla himself plays, the same version has been released on other Italian re-issues). Suite Punta del Este was dedicated to the Uruguayan resort where Piazzolla spent many summers and particularly enjoyed shark fishing (the Escualo record was about that).
