Héctor Marcó

Lyricist, singer, composer and actor (12 December 1906 – 30 September 1987)

After the first recording, I was in the studio, Di Sarli left the piano and told me:

“Congratulations. If you like we can be collaborators from now on”.

Since then there followed many songs together.

A story of two friends

In September 1940 the Carlos Di Sarli Orchestra recorded, for the first time (he will record it again two more times), this tango to great public acclaim.

The orchestra leader liked this piece so much that he cut it on three occasions: in September 1940, in March 1946, and in July 1951.

Who was this Pollo?

The true Pollo was an Uruguayan, born on September 29, 1890, who when he was a kid he already mingled with adults at the bohemian café reunions, like those at La Giralda.

Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

In 1918 Eduardo Arolas‘ orchestra was formed with him on first bandoneon and conductor, Manuel Pizzarro on second bandoneon, Rafael Tuegols on first violin, Horacio Gomila on second violin, Roberto Goyeneche on piano and Luis Bernstein on double bass.

This was the peak of his career, playing in both Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

Soon, Julio De Caro joined his orchestra.

1918 brought this eminently rhythmic composition: “Catamarca”, initially called “Estocada a fondo”, of which Carlos Di Sarli left us a magnificent rendition in 1940.

Rodolfo Biagi

Pianist, composer and leader (14 March 1906 – 24 September 1969)

“As for my style, I always longed to place the piano at a different level to the one used by the typical tango orchestras: a mere accompaniment.

So when I joined D’Arienzo I succeeded in making it true.

I was with him from December 1935 until June 1938.

In 1938, I put together my own orchestra.”
