Info: Adiós Nonino (Farewell, Nonino in Spanish) is a tango written in memory of Piazzolla's father, Vicente "Nonino" Piazzolla, a few days after his father's death. The piece was based on his earlier tango Nonino, composed in Paris in 1954, of which he kept the rhythmic part and re-arranged the rest with some additions.
