Osvaldo Fresedo | Argentine music to learn to dance at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

Osvaldo Fresedo

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

In 1927, Fresedo’s success was such that he kept five orchestras performing at the same time, the main of them at Tabaris cabaret, along Corrientes street, the most important street in the city.

Thus he had to go from one location to the other at least to show himself at each place where one of his orchestras was performing.

Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

In 1914, Bardi played with Eduardo Arolas. It was at the time that Arolas returned to his artistic career after a frustrating venture to open his own business failed.

They played practically by heart, after sight reading, the tangos that day by day arose from the inspiration of the musicians.

Bardi deliberately set aside compositions that, once released, did not satisfy his demanding taste, and he refused to play them again when his orchestra partners requested it. But Arolas liked one of these tangos very much, and, in the face of Bardi’s excuse of having misplaced it, said: “the one you wrote with green ink (tinta verde)…”

This tango went on to become one of the most well known compositions of Agustín Bardi, whose original edition of the score featured a cover illustrated by Arolas himself.
