Death of ROBERTO FIRPO. He was not a conservatory pianist, but he could read and write on the staff. We can say that he represented the epitome of the tango musician. He was a prolific and tenacious composer. In 1913 he released three tangos in one night: SENTIMIENTO GAUCHO, LA MAREJADA and DE PURA CEPA. Here another tango played by his own orchestra.
