Calendario Milonguero

ALFREDO BEVILACQUA dies. Self-taught pianist. He composed his first piece in 1902 with the title VENUS. D’Arienzo’s version is the one commonly used in the milongas. As a conductor of his own group, Bevilacqua recorded this tango on a waxed cylinder; an element used in the phonograph, the first apparatus invented to reproduce sound. Here we are listening to another one of his tangos.

♫ EMANCIPACIÓN. Osvaldo Pugliese (1955)
