The hands of Carlos Di Sarli

Carlos Di Sarli (January 7, 1903 – January 12, 1960) never permitted filming while he was playing the piano, so there is no visual record of his improvisations.  Troilo said he took his secrets to the grave.  Di Sarli was known as The Lord of Tango.

Guillermo Durante has performed the improvisations of Carlos Di Sarli for almost 30 years as director of Orquesta Tipica Gente de Tango.  I recorded him at the piano during a performance in Nuevo Salon La Argentina.
