PEDRO LAURENZ (Pedro Blanco Acosta) is born. A pivotal figure in tango. Excellent bandoneonist by the clear and intense sound. Although he composed little, he is a notable composer. As a conductor he started to record with his own orchestra in 1937. The commercial success did not reward him, even if with his music he has achieved a beautiful mix of rhythm and melody. He is co-author of the music of the theme we are listening to here.
