Revolucionario is a tango written by the Argentinean composer Piazzolla, Originally written for violin, guitar, bandoneon, piano and electric bass, it is transcribed for piano four hands in this version. In this piece, we can hear an amazing mixture of the passionate Latin American rhythm and the contrapuntal texture of Bach. This transcription is highly loyal to the original music, except with a few solo passages abridged. It is performed by Alfred Wong and Li Cheong in the Transcription Night I at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) on 9 March 2005 and later in the Transcription Night II at Shatin Town Hall on 31 Dec 2005.
