Nice job, Astor! Nobody does sad and haunting more beautifully than Piazzolla (well, OK, Brahms, Rachmaninov, and Barber). "Oblivion" is a great introduction to his really quite unique contribution to Classical music -- very South American in its ability to bridge classical and popular idioms in a convincing way. Thanks for sharing this!

PS: Totally unrelated to music -- what is the present prognosis for building new nuclear facilities to meet energy demands? Since the Japanese disaster, Germany announced suspension of further nuclear development, I think predominantly because they've identified sufficient alternative means to meet their energy demands -- but is that true for other parts of the world? Just curious.

Very well played!

I have played quite several of Piazzolla's pieces and think they're sensationally terrific. But sometimes I feel the sadness/nostalgia of some of his most famous works(Oblivion, Adios Nonino, Invierno Porteno, Milonga del Angel)is almost too much to deal with for both the listener and performer.

Here's a beautiful vocal quartet version of Adios Nonino:

Arguably, diversity is of paramount importance to the energy security. No individual technology will provide the silver bullet.Personally, I am in favor of the strategy of taking modest efforts across diverse sectors in place of with particular emphasis on nuclear power.
