Hugo Baralis

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

In 1936, his friend Anibal Troilo, who had already put together his own orchestra, summoned Hugo Baralis 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. Notwithstanding this, their friendship lasted until Troilo’s death.

Carlos Posadas

Violinist, guitarist, pianist, composer and leader (2 December 1874 – 12 November 1918)

All his musical knowledge reveals to us the splendid background with which Carlos Posadas arrived at Tango. 

To the melodic richness —in the purest criollo essence— he adds perfect writing. Spicing them with some little funny caper in the older compositions or with a robust seriousness in others.

His tangos have a polished musical construction, difficult at times, and a notable inspiration. His melodic themes and his rhythmic combinations offer originality and personality. Among the musicians of the Guardia Vieja he stands out as one of the most advanced composers because of his harmonic richness and his wider musicality.

All his unpublished works were given to Aníbal Troilo.

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.

“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:
