Calendario Milonguero

 Death of JULIÁN PLAZA, pianist, composer and bandoneon player. He was a scholar musician who remained away from fame. He joined the orchestras of Donato, Calo, Di Sarli and Pugliese. He composed modern tangos and the music of “La Tregua” for the first Argentine film nominated for an Oscar. He made several musical arrangements for dancing. Here perhaps the one with the most echo.

♫ LA MARIPOSA. Osvaldo Pugliese (1966)
