Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

In 1937, Bardi regularly attended the Germinal café on Corrientes Street to listen to the brand-new Anibal Troilo orchestra, and used to exclaim with sincere admiration:

“We would not have been able to play like that!”

Let’s hear the rendition of “C.T.V.” recorded by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica:

Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

In his mature age a certain scholarly air emanated from his head. His spirit was far from being agreeable and communicative. Let us not be mistaken to think that he had resentments, nor even that he was a misanthrope. Life imposed on him an early and constant struggle, he had to face adverse occasions and his resources were meager.

Laborious and determined, he watched over his family and even had time to satisfy his vocation.

His musical oeuvre did not provide for him material comfort. Maybe he did not care about that because he was really a creator that with unyielding endurance wanted to learn and increase his wisdom.

“Corazón no le hagas caso”, “Trenzas”, “Tabaco” and “Claveles blancos”; others based on harmonic designs with a rhythmical treatment more complex: “Margo” and “Anoche” or even, in a definitively modern trend: “A los amigos”, possibly his masterpiece, “A Zárate” and “A tus pies bailarín”.

Bandoneon player, leader and composer.
(11 July 1914 – 19 May 1975)

He was spellbound by the bandoneon when he heard its sound at cafés in his neighborhood. He was ten when he persuaded his mother into buying one for him. They got it at 140 pesos of that time, to be paid in 14 stallments, but after the fourth payment, the shopkeeper died and no one ever claimed for the rest. With that instrument he played almost during his whole lifetime. Continue reading.
