Osvaldo Fresedo. Music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

Fresedo, Osvaldo

Y su Orquesta Típica
Bandoneonist, director and composer.
(5 May 1897 - 18 November 1984)

Fresedo dared to introduce new timbres and colors in tango, such as the harp and vibraphone, and to make a discreet use of drums. He also selected his singers carefully to match the refinement of his orchestral style. In his long career worth mentioning are the vocalists Roberto Ray, Ricardo Ruiz, Oscar Serpa, Osvaldo Cordó, Armando Garrido and Héctor Pacheco. He also relied on talented musicians who, with their instruments or arrangements, contributed quality to the band, such as the pianist Emilio Barbato and the bandoneon players Roberto Pérez Prechi and Roberto Pansera. Fresedo's repertoire was also enhanced with the works written by them, not usually found in other repertoires. Learn more at todotango.com
