Argentine Tango School

“Nochero soy” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica, 1956.

Oscar Herrero, Argentine Tango musician and composer.

Oscar Herrero

Violinist, composer and arranger (July 5, 1921 – February 23, 1999)

He was born in the neighborhood of Palermo, in Buenos Aires, to a family home in which music and especially Tango, had a significant value.

In late 1943, a problematic situation occurred to Oscar Herrero when the unforgettable Alfredo Gobbi summoned him to join his aggregation when accepting the proposal from Osvaldo Pugliese’s orchestra.

Herrero’s attitude when joining Pugliese would make Gobbi very angry. And they reconciled many years later.

But he was right in his choice because he had a twenty-five-year tenure in the orchestra.

It is important to highlight his creative capacity, showed in works like “Nochero soy”.
