JORGE CALDARA dies. Bandoneonist, composer and conductor. As a child he studied music, but he had to abandon early because of the economic crisis of the 1930’s. In spite of this, when he was twenty he became Osvaldo Pugliese’s first bandoneon. He stayed with the maestro for a little over a decade. Afterwards he made an attempt as a conductor, but he died very young. He composed the music we are listening to now.
