Alfredo Lucero Palacios

Singer, lyricist and guitarist (26 October 1910 – 2 June 1974)

His career lasted a rather short time and he was only able to record a little over 20 numbers.

Out of them, only two were tango pieces and three waltzes that used to be included in the tango songbooks.

He was a singer with a pleasant range voice with delicate color.

A typical light tenor of the thirties, quite soft and with good intonation.

Together with Lito Bayardo, he wrote the lyrics of “Flores del alma”.

Music: Sebastián Piana. Lyrics: Homero Manzi.

Buenos Aires neighborhood corner
the moon and the sun paint your walls.
The winter rains cry for you
in the watercolors of my evocation.

Thirty moons know my wound
and a hundred streets saw us go by.
Your life and my life crossed,
you took the path that never returns.

Streets, where the meek life
lost hope,
passion and faith.
Streets, if I know that she is already dead,
knocking on every door
why will I look for her?
Little streets, shaded with poetry,
they saw us one day
both happy.
Companion of the sun and the stars,
that afternoon left
God’s way.

The winds murmur my sorrow.
The shadows tell me that he’s already gone.
And written in the serene nights
I find her name as an obsession.

A little corner of Buenos Aires neighborhood,
with walls painted with the moon and the sun,
that when crying with your winter rains
you stain the landscape of my evocation.

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.

Antonio Sureda

Bandoneonist and composer (4 October 1904 – 23 June 1951)

His early chroniclers said of him that 

“… he is among those who denote an effort to increase their artistic conditions and to renew the virtues that allowed his rise.

Above the name of new figures or above the extinguished popularity of many the name of this modern king of the waltz, as he was wisely called, has daily risen.”

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.
