Libertango - Carillon Version

Once you start, it's hard to stop. Regular readers of this blog have suffered through Libertango in many versions including: Stoner, House Music, Glass Harmonica, Single Charango, Double Charango, Theremin, Tzigane, Kannel, Gugak, Bass, Mechanical, 55Ewcia, Recorders, Tche-tchet-ka!, Ocarina, Erhu and believe it or not, there were others. One more couldn't hurt.

Today's video adds a performance of Libertango on a carillon to that long list. The particular set of bells in this carillon are to be found in the town hall of Leiden, formerly best known as the birthplace of Rembrandt and the capacitor but now destined to become known more for the performance of Libertango on it's carillon by noted composer and carillonist, Magdalena Cynk on June 25, 2011.
