Daniel Rabinovich, a member of Argentine comedy-musical group Les Luthiers, died on Friday after suffering from cardiac problems since approximately 2012. He was 71-years-old.
Nicknamed “Neneco” by his family and close friends, Rabinovich was one of the founders of Les Luthiers and remained with the group since its birth in 1967. For nearly four decades, Les Luthiers created 170 stage shows where they showcased their unique blend of musical knowledge and humor. Rabinovich was said to be “one of the group's most popular members, playing a variety of instruments outside of singing, including guitar, violin, bass-pipe, sousaphone, recorder and percussion”.
At times reminiscent of Tom Lehrer and on other occasions more like Victor Borge, Les Luthiers have entertained audiences worldwide. They will likely continue though the gang won’t be the same without the contributions of the late Rabinovich. He will be missed.
