Calendario Milonguero

Birth of EDGARDO DONATO, son of an Italian couple. His father was a cellist and trained him in classical music. When Edgardo organized his own tango orchestra, he played the violin and 3 of his 8 brothers played with him: Osvaldo (piano),  Ascanio (cello) and Felipe (violin). Now let’s pay attention to one of his compositions, which sound in the milongas.
