Enrique Francini & Troilo

Enrique Francini

Violinist, leader and composer (14 January 1916 – 27 August 1978)

Horacio Ferrer refers to him as: «a violinist of remarkable precision, standard vibrato, polished and unmistakable sound with a prodigious left hand, he has stood out, also, because of a personal way of dividing the musical phrase».

He turned out an important musician due to hard studying on his instrument, even in the peak of his success, he studied more than ever before.

Among the hits of his book, we highlight his great creation “La vi llegar”:

The word último (last) appears in several titles of his works, as testimony of that parade of farewells that runs through his lyrics, where there is always pity for those who suffer and a frequent resort to alcohol as an escape.
