"El irresistible", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Lorenzo Logatti

Clarinetist and composer (November 7, 1872 – March 19, 1961)

He was born in Foggia, Italy, and was a clarinetist and composer. His father, a professional musician, taught him his first lessons. Later, he continued his studies with other teachers and joined bands and orchestras in his province and also in Naples. He even led a band in Ancona.

During the carnival dances at the Teatro Ópera, he premiered 1908 his tango “El irresistible”.

At that time the repercussion in the audience was so important that a pair of dancing partners —according to a story— approached the bandstand in order to know its title. It was the female dancer who asked about it.

When the bandleader pointed out at a musician saying he was the composer of the tune, the latter answered that he had not yet given a title to the piece.

Then she added:
– But it’s irresistible!!!
– That’s it, that’ll be its title…
