This is one of my favorite Pugliese instrumentale. Interestingly, there are two different versions of this song, learned first from Royce. You can read here.
The shorter version is 3.55 minutes long, I think, which could be found on BTAC Collecion Revista Vol. 01. - Osvaldo Pugliese y su orquesta - Años '52 / '53. The more commonly available version is 4.06 minutes long from Reliquias' Cantan Alberto Morán y Roberto Chanel.
I like Fabian Peralta y Virginia Pandolfi's performance the best. I like Peralta's recent performance seen on youtube. There is more subtlety in his movement and less flashy. I really enjoy the musicality these two have expressed. And how they walked to the music.
Perfect example of how Pugliese is danced in the milonga setting. Simple, smooth yet musical. Less is more, and it seems so effortless.
Both of them are amazing dancers. I love the way Tate dancing socially in the milonga. Here, however, since they are not regular partners, the performance lacks of chemistry, despite occasional demonstration of individual brilliance.
Pay attention the pauses in all these performances in didactic context. It is interesting to see how each selected which phrases to dance and where in the music to pause. For me, the first two performances,even while the dancers were pausing, the intention still carried the music. So the both performances felt uninterrupted, smooth and flowing to the music. The third one, the pauses interrupted the flow of the whole dance, therefore the music choppy.
