El Tango es una historia- Disco

Music: Roberto Chanel. Lyrics: Reinaldo Yiso.

En hojas de berro, con pluma de llanto,
escribió su historia aquel viejo viejo arrabal.
Después de un bohemio con alma de santo,
le puso armonía, lo hizo inmortal.
Igual que esos yuyos de humildes veredas,
que nacen un día sin causa y razón,
así nació el tango y hoy es una estrella
que brilla en el cielo de toda emoción.

El tango es una historia,
cada frase es un recuerdo,
cada parte es una vida con una pena escondida
y todo el tango es lo nuestro.
Emoción que se hace queja
en la voz del bandoneón.
El tango es siempre una historia
que tiene en todas sus hojas
palabras del corazón.

English translation:

In cress leaves, with a crying feather,
the old suburb wrote his story.
Then a bohemian with the soul of a saint,
gave it harmony, made it immortal.
Like humble grass of the sidewalks,
that are born a day without cause and reason,
that’s how tango was born and today it’s a star
that shines in the sky of every emotion.

Tango is a story,
Every sentence is a memory,
each part is a life with a hidden grief
and all the tango is what belongs to us.
Emotion that becomes a complain
in the voice of the bandoneon.
Tango is always a story
which has in all its pages
words from the heart.

Charlo. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.Charlo

Argentine Tango singer, musician, pianist, actor and composer.
(7 July 1906 – 30 October 1990)

In his important work as composer of rare ability to musically express human drama and romantic rapture, the following tunes stand out : with lyrics by the film maker Luis César Amadori, the tangos “Cobardía”, “Rencor” and “Tormento”; with José González Castillo, “El viejo vals”, a piece of rare perfection, unparalleled in Charlo’s rendition; with José María Contursi, “Sin lágrimas”; with Cátulo Castillo, “Sin ella”. “Fueye” and the beautiful waltz “Tu pálida voz” with lyrics by Homero Manzi. And with Cadícamo, besides “Ave de paso”, three tangos of high value, but very different from each other, stand out: “Rondando tu esquina”, “Viejas alegrías” and “La barranca”. Continue reading.

The singer himself tells us: «I always got along very well with Pugliese in spite of his political ideas.»
The researcher Nélida Rouchetto described him this way:

«With his nasal sound, his canyengue and his common man’s diction he kept alive the popular roots that gave rise to the city music. It was Chanel who identified himself like an orchestra instrument, in the manner of a viola, as can be verified since his first recording».

Virgilio Expósito

Pianist and composer
(3 May 1924 – 25 October 1997)

Virgilio Expósito. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.His most outstanding compositions, according to my taste, are: “Vete de mí”, his most popular bolero with a great number of renditions, the waltzes “Absurdo” and “Tu casa ya no está”, the tangos “Farol”, “Afiches”, “Oro falso”, “Siempre París”, “Chau, no va más”, all them with lyrics by Homero, and the instrumentals, “Chau Piazzolla” and “Parisien”, in collaboration with Héctor Stamponi. Also he and his elder brother finished the posthumous work by Enrique Discépolo: “Fangal”.
He was a composer with remarkable melodies and he made a great number of his hits, either recognized by the artistic quality of his oeuvre or by the commercial acclaim. But he was a polemic character. Continue reading.

Roberto Chanel. Argentine Tango music from Marcelo Solis collection at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

“Farol” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Chanel, 1943.

Osvaldo PuglieseOsvaldo Pugliese

Pianist, leader, composer.
(2 December 1905 – 25 July 1995)

Of the greatest importance was, when his orchestra finally recorded in 1943, the arrival of Roberto Chanel, tough singer, with nasal sound and compadrito style, who left 31 recordings. To achieve a contrast, Pugliese included Alberto Morán as vocalist because of his dramatism, sensuality, his rare quality for the mezza voce and perfect match with the orchestral accompaniment. His appeal on women has never been equaled by any other singer. Morán left 48 recorded songs. Between 1949 and 1950, Jorge Vidal, another of the popular voices in the history of this orchestra, recorded only eight. Among the subsequent singers outstand, although with repertories of irregular quality, Jorge Maciel and Miguel Montero. Read more
