Piazzolla's Got Talent

Susan Boyle has earned the spotlight through her "Britain's Got Talent" win but Piazzolla takes the gold in "Mam Talent" (Poland's version of the "Got Talent" franchise) through the fingers of Marcin Wyrostek playing Libertango in the finals of that contest last night. Even though Marcin's Corazon Quintet was just featured in this blog last week, I will take the unusual step of highlighting the same artist again to celebrate his win. To fully appreciate the range of Mr. Wyrostek's skills, I encourage you to watch one of his earlier performances on the show where J.S. Bach visits the accordion through the fingers of Marcin.

Congratulations, Marcin!

  1. Hi -- do you happen to know if there's anywhere in the US I can buy any of Marcin Wyrostek's music or that of the Tango Corazon Quintet? Thanks so much for posting all theses videos in such good order! With best wishes, Carol

  2. Carol,

    To the best of my knowledge, they are not available anywhere in the U.S. I'll let you know through a comment in this post if that changes.
