Ángel D'Agostino y su Orquesta Típica with Ángel Vargas. Argentine Tango music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

D’Agostino, Ángel

Pianist, composer and leader
(25 May 1900 – 16 January 1991)

Another interesting opinion is that of Luis Adolfo Sierra: «D’Agostino was right with the purpose of creating a style of very simple musical conceptions, but with an expressive way of playing, carried out by a qualified nucleus of performers. But the identification with Angel Vargas determined, over the independent work of each one, the success of a team that managed to succeed at the time of the greatest presence of major tango figures».
The journalist Jorge Göttling warns us: «The one who thinks that D’Agostino played the piano, neither knows about piano nor knew D’Agostino. Both were simultaneously playing, as if they were a couple in the middle of romance.» Learn more at
