    This clip presents a lovely performance of one of my favorite works!
    Unfortunately for me, I have been ignorant of the career of Fernando Puchol, who tragically died from The Virus. I will endeavor to learn more about him.
    Rest In Peace, Maestro Puchol. You have much congenial company on the other side….
