General Director

Lyrical singer and former television host Laura Escalada Piazzolla met Astor Piazzolla- a composer who revolutionized the music of tango and created his own unique genre- in 1976 while conducting an interview with him. Shortly thereafter, the two married in France and never parted ways.

In 1995, three years after he passed away, Laura Escalada Piazzolla created the Astor Piazzolla Foundation to preserve and promote his legacy.

As the President of the foundation, Laura Escalada Piazzolla has brought back the infamous quintet formation, now Quinteto Astor Piazzolla, through which she realizes ongoing performances of the maestro’s works around the globe.
