“La cachila” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica, 1945.
Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)
In 1921 Arolas returned from Europe and remained in Uruguay.
Possibly, this is the year in which he composed what is considered his masterpiece: “La Cachila”.
It has everything.
After an intense first part, of incomparable beauty, comes a second part with vibrant renovating rhythms, piercing, rich, and tearing.
That is the way it was interpreted by Osvaldo Pugliese.
It had become one of the classics of the genre, of a permanent presence in the repertoire of orchestras of all times.
