Ángel D'Agostino & Ángel Vargas, Argentine Tango orchestra conductor and singer.

Ángel Vargas

Singer, lyricist and composer (22 October 1904 – 7 July 1959)

In 1940 he would commence his fundamental period when entering the orchestra led by the pianist Ángel D’Agostino with whom he would stay until 1946, producing 94 renditions on record which stand as legitimate jewels in the genre.

A singer with an impressive personality, he is the symbol of porteño (from Buenos Aires) tango phrasing in the 40s. 

His phrasing was reo and compadrito but at the same time of an infinite good taste. 

Angel Vargas died young and still without a very noticeable decline as interpreter; he was, no doubt, one of the major artists in our tango music. 

Among his recordings, stands out “Ninguna”.

Rodolfo Sciammarella

Pianist, composer and lyricist (8 October 1902 – 24 June 1973)

Very few were the singers and the orchestras that had not included some of his pieces in their repertoires.

He achieved so many hits, the fruit of his extraordinary facility for composition, and his permanent inventiveness. 

When critics are talking about composers, his name should not be omitted.

Juan Andrés Caruso, Argentine Tango lyricist.

Juan Andrés Caruso

Lyricist and play-writer (20 September 1890 – 1 March 1931)

He lived barely forty years and it gave him time to be an outstanding playwriter, journalist, and one of the most prolific tango lyricists.

He was an avant-garde of the picturesque tango; that is to say, the tango that portrays the mocking spirit of the man of Buenos Aires, describing the subtle aspects of his peculiar idiosyncrasy.

Adolfo Herschel

Lyricist, guitarist and singer (17 August 1892 – 12 July 1941)

Around age twenty he began to publish in the magazines of that time (Mundo Argentino, El Hogar) the delicate poems he used to write when he was a student.

He was a true, loyal friend of the Gardel, who used to frequent his home and he was, from the beginning, also contributor to his repertoire.

For instance with his tango with music by Francisco Lomuto: “Muñequita”.
