Piazzolla RTP Video

In February, 2010 this blog highlighted an original Piazzolla performance of Michelangelo 70 which had been captured from a Rádio Televisão Portuguesa (RTP) television broadcast which originated in Lisbon in 1987. The person who posted that video, Hugo Omar Viggiano, has now posted the entire broadcast - more than an hour of music and interviews with Piazzolla.

To my knowledge, this video is not available from other sources. There are some audio quality and sync problems but even with those, the video is very interesting.

If the video does not appear below click here.

Note added 4 June, 2012: The original five videos posted with this blog were removed from YouTube. This video covers the complete concert and is a more than suitable replacement.
