Legendary player of the Bandoneon who defined the instrument and “the” orchestra for “milongueros”. No one’s Tango collection is complete without some of his music. “It is not what you can do, but how you do it”
Carlos Di Sarli
Di Sarli is the classic sound for salon dancing. Almost everybody has started dancing tango by practicing to the slow, clear, and steady beat of this master pianist.
Juan D Arienzo
The “King of the Beat”. His instrumentals are the “classic” salon music and these discs have been selected to give the best possible introduction to his music. An integral part of the milonga experience, D Arienzo is played everywhere.
Born a hundred years ago, he was the most popular ochestra leader in the Classic period. His greatly loved dance orchestra was loyal to the walking beat of the salon, but heralded the beginning of tango as concert music. Universally used by modern stage dancers to create choreography. Every disc is a gem!
Ricardo Tanturi had two great singers with his orchestra, each with a fanatical following among milongueros: Alberto Castillo and Enrique Campos. These CDs give a great flavour of that classic period.
