Alfredo De Angelis

Pianist, leader and composer. (2 November 1910 – 31 March 1992)

In the forties, Alfredo De Angelis was the promoter of the vocal duets.

Revising his discography the team Dante-Martel stands out in the first place with pearls like “Remolino”.

Alfredo De Angelis belongs to the group of orchestras that focused their interest in dancing.

This, however, does not mean they lacked artistic value, on the contrary, they were precise in execution, with good arrangements, and were lined-up with great musicians and vocalists.

He is the composer of this beautiful tango.

Alfredo Lucero Palacios

Singer, lyricist and guitarist (26 October 1910 – 2 June 1974)

His career lasted a rather short time and he was only able to record a little over 20 numbers.

Out of them, only two were tango pieces and three waltzes that used to be included in the tango songbooks.

He was a singer with a pleasant range voice with delicate color.

A typical light tenor of the thirties, quite soft and with good intonation.

Together with Lito Bayardo, he wrote the lyrics of “Flores del alma”.

Ciriaco Ortiz

Bandoneonist, director and composer (5 August 1905 – 9 July 1970)

It would be absolutely impossible to transcribe in a music staff what he plays in his instrument.

It is a style with reminiscences of the guitar plucking of the milonguero criollo, which even though it has had no followers it may have much influenced Aníbal Troilo.

His most important composition was, no doubt, “Atenti pebeta” with lyrics by Celedonio Flores.

Alfredo De Angelis with Carlos Dante and Julio Martel, Argentine Tango music.

Music: Luis Mottolese. Lyrics: Víctor Spindola.

The flower of my illusion
the cold killed her
from a cruel winter
of ingratitude and pain.
Poor flower!

Today is grave and peace
of my lust for passion,
because it doesn’t come back anymore
what I loved in a frenzy.
Oh, what the kisses have done
that with rapture, you gave me …

Oblivion covered everything
with her sad cloak
for more to come back.
Being my first illusion
lonely grave
of my last love.
Vain oaths
from a burning mouth
with venom and curse;
but the recorded memory
like an eternal shroud,
about my soul,
sad covered her,
and that’s why in the dark
I am meditating,
wandering randomly
with your name written
like a sentence
of not being able to forget
the heart that loved you.

Because you saw the distance
between my faith and your ambition,
you killed my illusion
with the sharp dagger of fickleness.
Maybe remorse
make your eyes cry
because I gave you
my love and my faith,
for a nest to form.

Armando Tagini

Lyricist, composer and singer (9 June 1906 – 12 July 1962)

He had the need and the habit of composing.

He himself says: “I take the themes of my songs from life itself, from what I see passing before my eyes, from every impression I pick up when passing by, adding to it my own emotion, when committing it to paper. Every place is suitable to take notes, that later become verses… I prefer the sentimental genre and especially in tango, that is per se nostalgic, it is more attuned with the temper of our people. I would dare to say that we, the Argentines are a little romantic…”
