Privileged Performance

I love it when a YouTube video gives you a look behind the curtain. One of the most famous cellists in tango is Ricardo Francia. Famous as a performer, an arranger, a teacher and conductor. This video captures Francia today at age 77 in an informal setting with his son on guitar playing Piazzolla's Oblivion. This is clearly music he has internalized and it flows so naturally and smoothly that it is a privilege to listen.
