Di Sarli, Carlos

“El Señor del Tango”
Pianist, composer, and leader.
(January 7, 1903 – January 12, 1960)

He was a talented pianist, maybe one of the most important, who conducted his orchestra from his instrument, with which he mastered the outfit’s synchrony and performance.
In his orchestral scheme, there were no instrumental solos; the bandoneon section sang, at times, the melody, but it had an essentially rhythmic and danceable role. Only the violin was showcased in a highly delicate way, on a brief solo or a counter melody.
The piano led in a suggesting way, with an embellished bass line, which turned into a trademark of the maestro, linking the bars of the piece and stressing the delicate, elegant rhythm, especially for dancing. Learn more at
