Argentine Tango School

Ángel D'Agostino, Argentine Tango pianist, leader and composer.

Ángel D’Agostino

Pianist, composer and leader (25 May 1900 – 16 January 1991)

That orchestra had magic, perceived without the need for grandiloquence or stentorian deeds.

Everything was achieved through its simplicity and its good taste.

D’Agostino was right to create a style of very simple musical conceptions but with an expressive way of playing, carried out by a qualified nucleus of performers.

But the identification with Ángel Vargas determined, over the independent work of each one, the success of a team that managed to succeed at the time of the most significant presence of prominent tango figures.

In 1940 the bandoneonist Eduardo Del Piano joined the orchestra, replacing Alfredo Attadía, adding to its repertoire the tango of his authorship, “Esta noche en Buenos Aires”.
