Tango take two

Strange thought near the end of a fantastic recital by Elmira Darvarova and Octavio Brunetti of Astor Piazzolla's tangos arranged for violin and piano at newish performance space SubCulture: This music - so grand, so tragic, so beautiful, so heartbreaking but so defiantly desperately alive - could convince a being (perhaps the denizen of one of the splendid but non-eternal Buddhist heavens) to return to life in human form one more time, despite all its anguishes.
