About “Don Agustin Bardi”:
Horacio Salgán (1916) wrote the piece in 1947 as a musical tribute to another Tango Musician from the previous generation Agustin Bardi (1884-1941). Meticulous in the detail of his appearance, so was Don Agustin Bardi as a musician. Known as a violinist, guitarist and pianist and composed roughly 70 Tangos. He left school after the Third Grade, but was educated musically by an uncle. Obviously unusually gifted, he joined the orchestra Los Artisanos at the age of 8!
A French music critic wrote in “Le Monde” of Paris:
«The orchestras led by Salgán in the years 1944 to 1957 widen the traditional form of tango, deal with the rhythmical aspect in depth and add to it a “Black touch”, creating a new kind of tango trend deeply rooted in its tradition but receptive to Bartók, Ravel, jazz and Brazilian music».
