|Garold Fowler critically edited and transcribed the following compositions by Astor
Piazzolla. These works were performed on Fowler's doctoral research recital and in
performances by Tango Espejo between 2009 and 2013. When transcribing and
editing Piazzolla's compositions for quintet, Fowler only used the recordings of Astor
Piazzolla and his quintets to maintain Piazzolla's musical integrity and genius.
Compositions in the list below that are not quintet compositions were arranged by
Fowler but he still aimed to maintain Piazzolla's musical integrity by listening to
recordings of Piazzolla with his ensembles.
Fowler's guide in creating "performers editions" of Piazzolla's quintets and making
arrangements of other works by Piazzolla were Piazzolla's own words regarding
improvisation in his music. Piazzolla said in his Decalogue, "Nothing - is the fruit of
improvisation." It is also said that Piazzolla told one of his musicians to embellish "In
the style of Piazzolla."
