Juan Baüer

Pianist, composer and leader (27 November 1897 – 13 September 1952)

Since childhood, he had been known by the nickname Firpito because he liked the tangos composed by Roberto Firpo.

The latter, on a certain occasion, called him that way.

He became a composer in 1924 and produced many great tangos, like this one.

He started his career working in movie theaters, theaters, and the Uruguayan Sondor records.

Baüer was born in Spain on November 27, 1897. When he was a kid, he arrived in Uruguay, Salto, where he grew up and studied.

He passed away in Montevideo on September 13, 1952.
