The only entry for Piazzolla in the Ultimate Hall of Fame — and he's also the only Argentine composer to feature in the chart. This piece first appeared in 2009 and has remained in the Hall of Fame ever since, reaching its highest position of 143 in our 2015 top 300.
Piazzolla is undoubtedly the master of the Tango, and his 'Libertango' (a portmanteau that incorporates 'Libertad' and 'Tango') is one of the most performed of his works. Spicy rhythms and a fiendish melody have kept this one at the forefront of modern Tango, with countless brilliant interpretations to explore.
