Performance Today for Friday, June 21, 2013

For ten years, Pablo Ziegler played piano with the legendary tango composer Astor Piazzolla. Today, Ziegler is a tango composer well-respected in his own right, often combining classical, jazz and tango traditions. On Friday's Performance Today, our featured 21st century piece is a new tango suite by Pablo Ziegler called Suite Canyengue.
