We hope to break this traditional concept and encourage those who are busy on weekdays to have the opportunity to enter the concert hall with the fare of the people to enjoy the first-class music. Quality and artistic level concerts.

Popularize high-quality classical music to a wider audience, and also establish a platform for face-to-face communication with musicians in the form of a combination of music lectures and performances to achieve deeper levels of culture. Dialogue, expanding the audience's understanding of music. The phoenix inhabits the indus, the mountain is not high, the name is immortal, the water is not deep, and there is a dragon.

We believe that this platform of Baiyin Music will attract more and more outstanding performers and audiences to join our concerts. In the future activities, we will bring more high-quality concerts and wonderful lectures to the audience, so that the audience can enjoy the appreciation of music while enjoying the music.

Astor Pantalion Piazzolla (Spanish: Ástor Pantaleón Piazzolla, March 11, 1921 - July 5, 1992), Argentine composer and Bandoneon accordionist . As a composer, Piazzolla, based on omni-system classical music training, creatively blends the traditional classical music and jazz composition, and promotes tango music from popular dance accompaniment music to stand alone on stage. The purely musical form that is highly artistic and expresses profound philosophy, and thus created the "Tango Nuevo" music, became one of the representative figures of Argentine culture, and an important figure in the history of South American music. In Argentina, Piazzolla was revered as “the father of tango” (el gran Piazzolla).

Piazzolla added the rigor of classical music and the improvisation of jazz music to tango music. Secondly, in order to break the unchanging melody and repeated rhythm of traditional tango music, Piazzolla makes his melody more unconventional, more complex, more profound, more rich in form, and expands the performance of tango music.

Compared with other South American music, especially Brazilian music, Piazzolla believes that his music is more rational and calm, and does not deliberately seek Europeanization or classicalization, but creates a new culture.

Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. Spanish means “good air” and is known as “South America Paris”. Buenos Aires is located on the south bank of the La Plata River, on the southeast coast of South America, and on the other side is Uruguay (Oriental). Buenos Aires under Piazzolla is even more mysterious, and every melody is beautiful. Buenos Aires is also the home of tango dance, with a profound cultural heritage and artistic atmosphere. In the San Telmo district, there is a wonderful tango show on the weekly market. Piazzolla's "Four Seasons" is a collection of four seasons of his hometown of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The structure is the same as that of the "four seasons" of Vivadi, only in the southern hemisphere. The beginning of the year is summer, so Piazzolla's "Four Seasons" also starts from "Summer." It is said that when he wrote "Autumn", he decided to make the "Four Seasons" complete.
