Astor Piazzolla ~ Obilivion (original version)

Ástor Pantaleón Piazzolla (March 11, 1921 — July 4, 1992) was an Argentine tango composer and bandoneón player. His oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. A virtuoso bandoneónist, he regularly performed his own compositions with different ensembles.

There were a number of different versions, all lovely, on YouTube and it was difficult to choose just one for this post, so here are a few others.

Nadja Kossinskaja on classical guitar

Hauser on cello.

Tatiana Primak Khoury on piano.
