Rodolfo Biagi

Pianist, composer and leader (14 March 1906 - 24 September 1969)

"I used to go often to the Chantecler where Juan D’Arienzo, who was a friend of mine, was playing.

His pianist then was Luis Visca. Several times I was invited to replace him because he always was a little bit ill.

When his health was even worse it was normal that I was his substitute and so an important stage in my career began.

As for my style, I always longed to place the piano at a different level to the one used by the typical tango orchestras: mere accompaniment. So when I joined D’Arienzo I succeeded in making it true.

I was with him from December 1935 until June 1938.

In 1938, I put together my own orchestra.

The chief of advertising of the Palmolive firm, Mr. Juan Carlos Bergeroc, called me Manos Brujas (Sorcerer’s Hands).
