"The avant-garde is not tango. Therefore, Piazzolla's is not either"
"I do not share what Piazzolla conceives as tango," said Sosa, assuring that the proposal of the Mar del Plata was not avant-garde tango either. "Art is emotion; where there is no emotion there is no art," he added. He later explained that tango is "humanity, simplicity and the language of the people." In that sense, he assured that Piazzolla's proposal was "lame music, oriented towards the twelve-tone". "I am more moved by the two notes that Pichuco (Troilo) places than the 1,700 by Piazzolla". Sosa did not deny Piazzolla as a "creator", but he compared him to the painters Picasso and Dalí, "who are also creators and nobody understands them." Finally, he explained that modern tango could be done without distorting the genre. "The avant-garde is not tango. Therefore, Piazzolla's is not either," he concluded. Julio Sosa and Astor Piazzolla, two legends at odds.
