Andrés Domenech

Pianist, lyricist and composer (16 December 1901 – 2 September 1950)

Decidedly determined to show his conditions, he settled in Buenos Aires in 1923, where he managed to impose his name as a tango composer.

That year began a series of titles of very personal style and particular quality.

Some were very popular, such as “Va a cantar un ruiseñor”.

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.

Among them “Nido gaucho”.

Guillermo Barbieri with Carlos Gardel and other musicians. Argentine Tango music.

Guillermo Barbieri

Guitarist, singer, lyricist and composer (25 September 1894 – 24 June 1935)

Those were years of difficult rivalry in composition, that Guillermo Barbieri triumphantly passed and many of the tunes of Gardel’s songbook were as well hits in the best tango orchestras of the period.

Because of all that was said, Guillermo Barbieri rightly deserves to be considered one of the most important names in Tango.

Among his outstanding compositions, we like to mention “Rosas de otoño”.

Alberto Podestá

Singer and composer (22 September 1924 – 9 December 2015)

“One evening somebody brought me a business card, it had been handed to the waiter by a gentleman named Vázquez, that was Carlos Di Sarli’s agent. 

He wanted me to meet him at a nearby barroom after my show was over. 

In the beginning, I held it in my hands. 

As I realized I was creasing it, I put it into my pocket. 

Since the time the card was handed to me until the end of my performance that evening my body was shivering. 

But I swear that I sang as never before. 

Imagine, to have the chance of singing with Di Sarli before I was 18. 

It was like a dream come true!”
