Argentine Tango School

Ricardo Tanturi. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

Tanturi, Ricardo

"El caballero del Tango"
Pianist, leader and composer
(27 January 1905 - 24 January 1973)

hough he never stood out for his musical skills, Tanturi led -for several decades- a renown orchestra which owed its success basically to the strong appeal of some of its singers. For this reason, the instrumental pieces played by his mediocre orchestra are few and little recalled. However, his fame would persist along time and in the last years with the success of tango dancing, Tanturi recordings are perhaps the favorite. Moreover, some of his recordings have become classics.
