"Mentira" by Ángel D'Agostino y su Orquesta Típica with Ángel Vargas in vocals, 1945.

"Mentira", Argentine Tango from Francisco Pracánico. Music sheet cover.

Francisco Pracánico

Pianist, composer and leader (15 May 1898 - 30 December 1971)

Today he is remembered more as a composer rather than as an interpreter, surely due to the difficulty of finding the recordings of his orchestra. 

All his compositions are memorable pages, often possessing a sorrowful melody of rare and precious nostalgia.

As an orchestra conductor, he kept his style unaltered, with certain similarity to several orchestras of the period, as suitable for dancers as for those who wanted to listen to a fashionable record comfortably at home.
