He was born in San Juan, Argentina, in Coincidentally, Luis Jorge studied piano and composition at the same university where I got my first undergraduate degree in piano — the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, in Mendoza, Argentina. He taught at the University of Colorado at Boulder from the s until , when he retired. I met Mr. Gonzalez in person in when I was hired to teach piano and pedagogy at CU Boulder. We had much in common — expatriates born in the same region of Argentina, educated in the same music school there, and a passion for everything Argentine.
I had heard about his illustrious career when I was in Ohio at my previous teaching job. So it was a pleasure to finally meet him.

I remember clearly the first time I presented this material in front of a group of eager teachers in southern Ohio. In fact, including Piazzolla in my repertoire had not crossed my mind until then. You may ask why I had totally ignored a composer who invariably causes a deep impression in classically- and non-classically-trained listeners? A composer who is equally admired and played by tango and jazz musicians, and more recently, cross-over classical performers such as Barenboim, Gidon Kremer and Yo-Yo Ma?
