Oltre Duo Play Piazzolla on Guitar and Vibraphone

Oltre DuoOltre Duo: Mauro Tonolli (guitar) and Alessandro Bianchini (vibraphone) play Cafè 1930 on Guitar and Vibraphone by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992). Audio: Marco Sirio Pivetti. Video: Jacopo Salvi. Histoire du Tango for which Cafè 1930 is one movement is one of the most famous compositions by Argentinian composer Ástor Piazzolla, originally written for flute and guitar written in 1986. It is often played with different combinations, including violin substituted for the flute, and also harp or marimba substituted for the guitar. The weird thing here is the vibes being subbed for the flute. Both instruments are so bell-like and the vibes make the guitar sound very woody. But cool nevertheless. Good playing overall so power to them!
