Aníbal Troilo aka Pichuco aka El Gordo

Anibal Troilo maestro of the bandoneon, composer and orchestra leader was born 11 July 1914.  So significant was Troilo that a law was passed by the Congreso de la Nacion Argentina in 2005 to commemorate this date henceforth as El Dia Nacional del Bandoneon.

It has been said that Troilo was perhaps slightly less technically proficient than some other bandoneonistas.  However, his sensitive interpretations of many great tangos, which he played with such delicacy and soul are unforgettable. They give me goose bumps. Just watch him - his impassive facial expression belies the emotion he conveys to us.  And listen to him, especially the very last part of Suerte loca on Tango & Chaos

If you want to hear more of Troilo, treat yourself to these tandas
