Finally Together, Again

We began the story of the historic 1989, joint performance in Amsterdam of Astor Piazzolla and Osvaldo Pugliese in this blog earlier this month. If you don't know the story you might want to read that blog entry before viewing today's videos.

The first video below finishes the joint performance as Adios Nonino follows La Yumba. Note the perplexed looks on the faces of both Piazzolla and Pugliese as Geraldo Gandini, then pianist with Piazzolla's sextet, provides an improvised and most unusual prelude to Adios Nonino.

The second video is an interview with the two legendary tango artists.

Thank you, Hugo, for sharing the video.
