Calendario Milonguero

FRANCISCO DE CARO dies. Pianist and composer. The brother of the great Julio de Caro. His Italian parents (the father a musician and the mother a singer) did not accept their sons’ passion for tango. The two brothers left home and in 1924 founded a very important sextet: they reconciled the tango “criollo” with classical music. Let’s listen to a song composed by the two De Caro brothers.
