Raúl Kaplún

Violinist, leader and composer (11 November 1910 – 23 January 1990)

After playing in Miguel Caló orchestra, Raúl Kaplún thought that the time had come to look for another place.

In 1942 he found it in the orchestra led by the pianist Lucio Demare, who since 1938 carried out a style that blended rhythmic stress and sentimental mood in sympathy with the public longing for dancing and living or dreaming of romance.

Besides his violin playing, Kaplún contributed to Demare with some tango numbers he composed, like “Una emoción”, recorded in 1943 with Raúl Berón, with lyrics by José María Suñé.

Oscar Rubens

Lyricist and composer (18 January 1914 – 6 October 1984)

Oscar was a prototypical lyricist of the 40s, with his sad lyrics, of love affairs laden with romanticism and, because of that, they are elementary, with neither contradictions nor psychological complexities.

He always made use of the poetic touch, but without overshadowing the lyricist: his lines, heard from a singer’s lips, come nicely blended with the music, but it is not advisable to read them looking for a poem.

Among his works, we can highlight “Se fue”, with music by Horacio Salgán.

“El vals soñador” by Miguel Caló y su Orquesta Típica with Raúl Berón in vocals, 1942 (English translation).

Music: Armando Pontier. Lyrics: Oscar Rubens.

Who when hearing the first bars of the waltz
he has not intended to dance.
If it even seems that the world in its eternal roll
it will turn to the beat of some waltz.

If you have dreamed, in your arms to be able to hold,
to that blonde who charms with her look.
Very close together you both will be
if follow the rhythm of the waltz.

To dream,
let yourself be lulled,
say such sweet words in the ear
that invite to love.

To dream,
following the beat,
closing your eyes,
very close your mouths, the dream of the waltz.

To feel that imprisons us
perfume of love.
Then an angel with a voice from heaven
steals our farewell.

To dream,
following the beat
that everything is different
if you give your soul
to the rhythm of the waltz.

Lucio Demare

Pianist, composer, arranger and leader (9 August 1906 – 6 March 1974)

An innate faculty for musical invention and a delicate creative temper identified, from the very beginning, the characteristics of his oeuvre.

A player of unmistakable sound and phrasing, he has been an authentic speaker with his piano. 

Either his instrumental and vocal charts have the trademark of his fine personality as artist or the groups he led in renderings so satisfying as “Tal vez será su voz”.
