Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

In 1912 Roberto Firpo called Arolas and Roccatagliatta to play with him at the famous cabaret Armenonville. Later, Arolas distanced himself from Firpo and had a sign at his presentations that clarified “We don’t play Firpo’s compositions”.

But “Fuegos artificiales” became a great outcome from this encounter.

Firpo still went on to record many of Arolas’ tangos.

Let’s listen to the magnificent rendition of “Fuegos artificiales” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1945.

Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

Between 1913 and 1916, his musical composition and production showed evident improvement due to his musical studies, and the achieved experience of his profession.

He consolidated his fame, taking his orchestra to the level of the most prominent ones, leaving the neighborhood cafés, playing on Corrientes Street and at the luxurious places of Palermo neighborhood, in the interior of Argentina, and in Montevideo.

Some of the compositions of this period, among many that have today been forgotten are “Derecho viejo”-played here by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica in 1945.
