·"Quejas de Bandoneón" - Aníbal Troilo y Su Orquesta

Aníbal Carmelo Troilo (July 11, 1914 - May 18, 1975 in Buenos Aires) was an Argentine tango musician, bandoneon player, composer, and bandleader in Argentina. His orquesta típica was among the most popular with social dancers during the golden age of tango (1940-1955), but he changed to a concert sound by the late 1950s. He was one of those few artists who made us wonder what mystery, what magic produced such a rapport with people. As a bandoneon player, he was neither a stylist like Pedro Maffia, nor a virtuoso like Carlos Marcucci, nor a multiple creator like Pedro Laurenz, nor a phrasing player like Ciriaco Ortiz. But he had something of them all and he was, precisely, a master of personality and feeling in his expression. As an orchestra leader, he dug an undoubtedly tango style, balanced, without histrionisms and of undeniable taste. He knew how to choose the best players according to his musical ideas, he selected good singers, who beside him achieved their best, to such an extent that when they left the orchestra, only partially and for a short time could they reach a similar level. He also knew how to choose a repertory without having to accept the conditions suggested by the recording companies. Finally, he was an inspired composer, creator of pieces made to last forever, as also his renditions of somebody else's works which became masterpieces of all times. As composer, Troilo contributed an extensive number of major works. Some of his most outstanding titles are: "Toda mi vida", "Barrio de tango", "Pa' que bailen los muchachos", "Garúa", "María", "Sur", "Romance de barrio", "Che, bandoneón", "Discepolín", "Responso", "Patio mío", "Una canción", "La cantina", "Desencuentro" and "La última curda". If we add two bandoneon duets with Astor Piazzolla in 1970 when they recorded Cobián's "El motivo" and Carlos Gardel's "Volver", truly tango rarities for collectors, we then have a total of 485 recordings released even though it is presumed that there are several takes still in the can which were never released. He was a mythical character of Buenos Aires, who, as a poet said: "On May 18, 1975, his bandoneon fell off his hands"...
