Anselmo Aieta

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (5 November 1896 – 25 September 1964)

A prominent figure of the generation of tango men of the period 1910-1925, when by that time the schism of the interpretive styles of Tango took place, Aieta turned out to be the most significant rampart that traditionalism opposed to the new evolutionary ways of bandoneon playing.

It is in his overwhelming work as a composer where the flame of his geniality reaches a brighter light, either due to the huge volume of his output or because of that display of originality, beauty, and vigor that beats in each one of the melodies born out of his inexhaustible creative spring which has consecrated him as one of the top rhapsodes of the people.

He was a painter of happiness and sadness that changed colors for sounds.

Osvaldo Fresedo

Bandoneonist, director and composer. (5 May 1897 – 18 November 1984)

Born in Buenos Aires to a wealthy family seems to have influenced his art: his orchestra, refined and aristocratic, was the favorite of upper circles.

However, despite Osvaldo’s father was a rich businessman, at the age of ten, his family moved to La Paternal, a neighborhood somewhat away and humble, with flat houses in a popular surrounding which had its effect on his destiny.

It was there where he started playing the bandoneon.

His was the longest tango career ever found: over 1,250 recordings along 63 years.
