Argentine Tango School

"Milonguero viejo" by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica, 1944.

"Milonguero viejo", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Carlos Di Sarli

Pianist, leader and composer (7 January 1903 - 12 January 1960)

In his orchestral scheme there were not instrumental solos, the bandoneon section sang at times the melody, but it had an essentially rhythmic and danceable role.

He was a talented pianist, maybe one of the most important, who conducted his orchestra from his instrument, with which he mastered the synchrony and the performance of the outfit.

Only the violin was showcased in an extremely delicate way, on a brief solo or on a counter melody.

“Milonguero viejo (Fresedo)”, the tango he dedicated to Fresedo, his referent and admired friend, is curiously the paradoxical lapsus that portrays his own musical model.
