Pianist and composer (8 July 1911 – 17 February 1980)

Inspired and prolific composer, he was born in Buenos Aires City.

On his fourteenth birthday his parents surprised him with the gift of a piano.

Even though a cousin of his volunteered to teach him his early exercises he was an intuitive musician and had no need of teachings.

He was self-taught and also in composing.
