Claudio Frollo

Lyricist (8 June 1887 – 20 March 1942)

Enthusiast of  popular music began writing lyrics in 1927.

Dedicated to it definitively, he contributed significant successes such as the tango “Sólo se quiere una vez”.

He was a lawyer and an author. Judge of Instruction in the courts of the Federal Capital for several years, he knew how to reflect in his books, from 1935, the most interesting court anecdotes that he had to deal with closely.

Manuscript of "Naranjo en flor", Argentine Tango music.

“Naranjo en flor” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Floreal Ruiz in vocals, 1944 (English translation).

“Naranjo en flor” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Floreal Ruiz in vocals, 1944 (English translation).

Music: Virgilio Expósito. Lyrics: Homero Expósito.

English translation:

She was softer than water,
than soft water,
she was cooler than the river,
orange blossom.
And on that summer street,
lost street,
she left a piece of life
and left…

First you have to know how to suffer,
then love, then leave
and finally walk without thoughts…

Orange blossom perfume,
vain promises of love
that escaped with the wind.
After… what does it matter after?
All my life is yesterday
that stops me in the past,
eternal old youth
that has left me cowed
like a bird without light.

What have my hands done to her?
What have they done to her
to leave on my chest
so much pain?
Old grove pain,
corner song
with a piece of life,
orange blossom.

Y la perdí, by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Floreal Ruiz in vocals. Vinyl disc.

“Y la perdí” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Floreal Ruiz in vocals, 1947.

“Y la perdí” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Floreal Ruiz in vocals, 1947 (English translation).

Music: Antonio Rodio. Lyrics: José María Contursi.

English translation:

She has buried me in a void
cold, gray and starless night.
And I remain like a tree without a flower,
afternoon without light, field without sun…

She was a rest on my way,
she came to return my beautiful hours.
But finally the night enveloped me
with its closedness… and I lost her!

Never… my life cut short became happy again
and in my desolate hours
nothing can dry my tears.
With shattered wings
my crystal dreams were lost.
You will never… come back, I know that I will never
and at the end of my day
when nothing already exists…
you will call me.

Shadow that fades in boredom
cold of my word that names you.
And I’m so sad without you
crazy without you… dead without you.
She held my destiny in her hands,
and came to return my beautiful hours…
But in the end had more power the anguish
of my loneliness… and I lost her!

Singer
(29 March 1916 – 17 April 1978)

When I hear Floreal Ruiz I have the impression that the singer so naturally and spontaneously does it that he seems to be seated on a chair informally conversing, and the musical notes spring out of his throat with no effort. The timbre and the color of his voice are everyday sounds for me, there are neither stridences nor false resources, he does it in the most difficult way, easily.

He is, undoubtedly, a subtle singer, delicate, of an excellent diction which allows understanding not only the lyrics but also its dramatism. Continue reading at www.todotango.com…
