    Tango Masters: Carlos Di Sarli

    Writter: Michael Lavocah

    256 pages

    “That orchestra had something that made it different from the others. It had something that it is now hard to find which I call sacred fire.”

    Carlos Di Sarli (1903-1960) created the most elegant tango music ever known. Uniquely amongst the great orchestras, his final recordings are loved as much or even more than his early ones. Great waves of melody create a majestic feeling, although the music remains at heart quite simple, a combination which makes it a favourite of those who love to dance.

He formed his orchestra in 1939 from a cell in Argentina’s most notorious political prison.
