Horacio Sanguinetti, Argentine Tango lyricist

Horacio Sanguinetti

Lyricist (March 19, 1914 – December 19, 1957)

Many reasons coincide with considering him as one of the pens that helped to lend prestige to Tango literature, especially during the period deservedly famous, which has remained known in the genre’s history as The Forties.

Horacio Sanguinetti belonged to that qualified and unforgettable generation of musicians, composers, authors and interpreters.

By sensitivity, temper, and generational activity, he easily transcended through an abundant output -rich and notorious-even though with ups and downs; he is regarded and consecrated in a large number by titles that had easily overcome oblivion.

The fact that during that decade, it was impossible to find any outstanding orchestra that had not recorded some of his pieces is undeniable evidence of the level and importance of Tango’s creative labor.
