Tango and daily events

Music: Francisco Cafiero.

All or almost all the themes of daily events were taken to the music sheets by the composers: politics, sports, the feats of the brave who forged our fledgling aviation, children’s games, the characters of Buenos Aires, commercial advertisements, and so on.

These subjects and many more were, undoubtedly, an important part of the basis of our Tango repertoire.

“Comme il faut” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1938.

Hugo Baralis, a remarkable musician of Argentine Tango Golden Era.

Hugo Baralis

Violinist, leader and arranger (2 April 1914 – 4 February 2002)

This remarkable musician was owner of a sound with deep Tango roots and a singular phrasing.

In 1938, his friend Anibal Troilo, who had put together his own orchestra, summoned him to join it. 

This association not only identified him with the same musical sensitivity, but also with the codes of life and the bohemian spirit so special of that generation.

This tenure lasted until August 1943.

"C.T.V." music sheet cover. Agustín Bardi

“C.T.V.” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1942.

“C.T.V.” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1942.

Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

In 1937, Bardi regularly attended the Germinal café on Corrientes Street to listen to the brand-new Anibal Troilo orchestra, and used to exclaim with sincere admiration:

“We would not have been able to play like that!”

Let’s hear the rendition of “C.T.V.” recorded by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica:

Agustín Bardi. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

In his mature age a certain scholarly air emanated from his head. His spirit was far from being agreeable and communicative. Let us not be mistaken to think that he had resentments, nor even that he was a misanthrope. Life imposed on him an early and constant struggle, he had to face adverse occasions and his resources were meager.

Laborious and determined, he watched over his family and even had time to satisfy his vocation.

His musical oeuvre did not provide for him material comfort. Maybe he did not care about that because he was really a creator that with unyielding endurance wanted to learn and increase his wisdom.

Bandoneonist, leader and composer
(29 August 1917 – 25 December 1983)

A complete musician, a good bandoneon player and a better composer, he belongs to a generation that recreates tango, consolidating the task of arranging, where, as composer, he brings a work of nicely harmonized structure with completely original melodies, sometimes simple and melodic:

“Corazón no le hagas caso”, “Trenzas”, “Tabaco” and “Claveles blancos”; others based on harmonic designs with a rhythmical treatment more complex: “Margo” and “Anoche” or even, in a definitively modern trend: “A los amigos”, possibly his masterpiece, “A Zárate” and “A tus pies bailarín”.
