Antonio Scatasso

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (28 February 1886 – 29 July 1956)

Mandolin, guitar and bandoneon were the instruments that this Italian born in Naples played, but his activity was focused on orchestra leading and composing music.

Everybody agrees about his privileged memory, and his great facility to remember any kind of music.

He was a picturesque figure of the theater milieu, he achieved smash hits because he didn’t lack good taste and a fine intuition to create pleasant melodies.

Among his main titles is “Ya no cantas chingolo”.

Enrique Mora

Pianist, bandleader and composer (8 February 1915 – 14 July 2003)

Enrique Mora was a great musician.

Out of his compositions, one of the best known is “Este es tu tango”.

Strict respect for the melodic line, a stressed beat, regular beats, and, above all, a clear piano with crystalline sound and driving push that is the trademark of his style, ideal for dancers.

“Danza maligna” by Enrique Rodríguez y su Orquesta Típica with Armando Moreno in vocals, 1940.

Music: Fernando Randle. Lyrics: Claudio Frollo.

“Courageous compass measures are dragged
of the tango that shrinks and stretches …
His suffering music would seem
feel that a threat is coming.
We will both live the quarter of an hour
of the nostalgic and malignant dance.
Let’s hear the hearts beat
under the number of Venus Aphrodite.

The pleasure of the gods, perverse dancing,
Tango is a rite and is religion;
Criollas orchestras are their altars
and the priest, his bandoneon.

I want to feel trapped
as in the prison of my pain,
keep silent, half my soul
that there is a secret between the two.

Courageous compass measures are dragged
of the tango that takes over the fibers.
The game of your curlers in my temples
will be the extreme unction of my agony.
I invite you to penetrate this temple
where love purifies it all.
We will both live the quarter of an hour
of nostalgic and evil dance!”

Francisco Ruiz París

Lyricist (18 December 1883 – 9 November 1950)

Francisco Ruiz Paris was a playwright and artistic director.

Of Spanish origin, he was already doing something in the theater there in his land, a vocation to which he gave himself almost entirely in Buenos Aires since he arrived, back in 1908, working as an actor in its main stages.

Almost all the theatrical authors of that time wrote the songs of his works and he did not escape from that modality.

Alfredo Bigeschi

Violinist, lyricist, composer and journalist (18 December 1908 – 25 March 1981)

He was born on Elba, the Italian Mediterranean island located between Corsica and Tuscany, where Napoleon was confined in 1814.

When he was 12 years old, his parents set out on the road to America, arriving at the port of Buenos Aires on April 27, 1920.

His embedding in the New World started on Maciel Island, along with immigrants, adventurers, port and construction workers, and the underworld substrates who showed off their “cortes y quebradas”.

Hard, brave years, even more so for a little boy who did not speak the language and who suddenly ran into his father’s sudden blindness, for which he had to go out to work.

Although he dropped out of school, he never stopped reading, until his last days and this made it easier for him to use the language, the porteño idioms, and the early discovery of the nascent tango.

At the age of 16 he meets the famous Juan Maglio and contributes some verses to which Pacho puts music and thus “Tango argentino” was born.
