Calendario Milonguero

PEDRO SAPOCHNICK is born. Violinist associated with the 1st of July 1937, a historic day for tango, as it was the date on which Anibal Troilo’s orchestra made its debut. On that occasion the figure we are paying tribute to is a member of the line of three violins (together with Reynaldo Nichele and José Stilman). He remained with Troilo for eight musically wonderful years. It is an example of this the first milonga that was recorded by this formidable orchestra.
