Lorenzo Logatti

Clarinetist and composer (7 November 1872 – 19 March 1961)

He was born in Foggia, Italy, and was a clarinetist and composer. His father, a professional musician, taught him his first lessons. Later, he continued his studies with other teachers and joined bands and orchestras in his province and also in Naples. He even led a band in Ancona.

During the carnival dances at the Teatro Ópera, he premiered in 1908 his tango “El irresistible”.

At that time the repercussion in the audience was so important that a pair of dancing partners —according to a story— approached the bandstand in order to know its title. It was the female dancer who asked about it.

When the bandleader pointed out at a musician saying he was the composer of the tune, the latter answered that he had not yet given a title to the piece.

Then she added:
– But it’s irresistible!!!
– That’s it, that’ll be its title…

Raúl Berón

Singer (30 March 1920 – 28 June 1982)

He was, for some people, the best orchestra singer in the history of tango.

Although other major vocalists rival him this position in the opinion of the connoisseurs.

In an undeniable Gardelian tradition, tenor register and velvet sound, his peak in popularity coincided exactly with the period of greatest popularity for tango: from his inclusion in the Miguel Caló orchestra in 1939 until his withdrawal from the Aníbal Troilo orchestra in 1955.

Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

In 1918 Eduardo Arolas‘ orchestra was formed with him on first bandoneon and conductor, Manuel Pizzarro on second bandoneon, Rafael Tuegols on first violin, Horacio Gomila on second violin, Roberto Goyeneche on piano and Luis Bernstein on double bass.

This was the peak of his career, playing in both Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

Soon, Julio De Caro joined his orchestra.

1918 brought this eminently rhythmic composition: “Catamarca”, initially called “Estocada a fondo”, of which Carlos Di Sarli left us a magnificent rendition in 1940.
