Miguel Nijenshon, Argentine Tango musician and composer.

Miguel Nijensohn

Pianist, arranger, leader and composer (December 1, 1911 – May 9, 1983)

A crucial step in Nijensohn’s career was when he joined the Miguel Caló Orchestra in 1936, where he was a pianist and an arranger.

Miguel Nijenshon gave no chance of rest to his pencil: during tours, he took advantage of the long trips on the train to write the orchestra scores.

Music wasd his element, to which he was deeply devoted.

He was highly regarded in the tango circles because of his knowledge; renowned figures who did not know how to write music whistled their tangos to him so that he would write and harmonize them.

As a composer, he made great hits recorded by Juan D’ArienzoMiguel CalóCarlos Di Sarli, and other orchestras.

He was very popular in the Tango milieu, so he always got interpreters for his creations.
