Eduardo Arolas

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.

Luis Teisseire

Flutista, composer, lyricist and leader (24 October 1883 – 3 May 1960)

He was born in the city of Buenos Aires, son of Jean Teisseire, a native from France, and Maria Puzzi, born in Genoa (Italy).

Teisseire in his youth had a fighting temper. Music appeased his turbulent adolescence.

Among his compositions, we find unforgettable titles which total over 80 pieces.

Jorge Caldara, Argentine Tango bandoneon player, leader and composer.

Jorge Caldara

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (17 September 1924 – 24 August 1967)

His great move came when he joined the Osvaldo Pugliese Orchestra because there was a complete renewal in the bandoneon section.

Pugliese himself confessed that after auditioning different instrumentalists he chose Jorge because he was what he precisely needed, an element of vigorous personality and capable of driving, within the style of the orchestra, the other bandoneon players. 

At this stage, he as well evidenced his great capabilities as a composer which Pugliese knew how to take advantage of by premiering and recording his tango “Patético”.

Pedro Maffia

Bandoneonist, leader, composer, teacher (28 August 1899 – 16 October 1967)

He was the great stylist of the bandoneon.

Even in his physical attitude in the handling of the instrument.

As soon as he opened his “jaula” (cage, as also the bandoneon was known), getting rid of the spectacular creases of the bellows in fan-like manner…

Because Maffia did not have need of more air.

Agustín Bardi, Argentine Tango musician and composer.

Agustín Bardi

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

Agustín Bardi has very deservedly received the title of “composer of musicians.”

The excellent quality of his works always had the recognized admiration of all professional musicians without exception.

The musical elaboration of his tangos allows the showcasing of the Orquestas Típicas in any of its interpretative modalities.

Bardi’s tangos were not written to be played in the manner of primitive ensembles, without harmonic concerns or aesthetic interest in achieving greater musical enhancement.
