For Don Osvaldo Pugliese sometimes...
a red flower on their piano
but always...
a red flower on their heart

Pianist, director, composer.
(December 2/ 1905 - July 25/ 1995)
Name complete: Osvaldo Pedro Pugliese


Their father, Adolfo, worker of the footwear, intervened as fond piper in neighborhood quartets that cultivated the tango. Bigger two siblings played violin: Vicente Salvador, "Fito", and Alberto Roque, more consequent that the first one and for many years tied to the music. To Osvaldo the father who imparted the first lessons was of I sol-fa, and he began to also babble with the violin, but soon he leaned for the piano, although don Adolfo took certain time in buying the expensive instrument. After being formed in conservatories of the vicinity, to the 15 year-old age he began professionally in the "Brown call of Chancha", this way baptized by the parishioners in allusion to the owner's little hygiene.
Soon after, already in a brown acquaintance of the center of Buenos Aires, it integrated the first woman's bandoneonista group that had the tango, Francisca "Paquita" Bernardo. Ascending in their career, Osvaldo incorporated to Enrique's quartet Pollet, then to Roberto's Firpo famous orchestra, and in 1927 he was already the orchestra's of the great bandoneonista pianist Pedro Maffia, of which detached, next to the violinist Elvino Vardaro, to form a group to name of both that one knows was of advanced, but of which they have not been recordings.
Vardaro-Pugliese debuted in the National coffee, to undertake an extensive tour then for the interior of the country. It accompanied them as representante.gerente the poet Eduardo Moreno, author of the letter of the tango "Recuerdo", the most celebrated of those signed by Pugliese, and also, proposed by Moreno, the songwriter Malena of Toledo. The tour was an economic failure, and Vardaro it should pawn its arch "Sartoris" to pay the return passages.
Pugliese associated then with another violinist, Alfredo Gobbi, forming a group, one of whose bandeonistas was the jovencísimo Aníbal Troilo. That lasted few months, after that which formed their first cast characteristic to achieving the opportunity to act in a couple of local. Later on it integrated two duets, first with Gobbi and then with Vardaro, to act in radio radio stations. In 1934, when the bandoneonista Pedro Laurenz - ex De Caro, as Maffia - orchestra formed, Pugliese occupied the piano, occasion in that wrote the first arrangements on a couple of tangos, among them "La Beba", it that belongs him. In 1936 it integrated the group of the bandoneonista Miguel it Soaked, even signed up in the tendency "decareana", and this way it was channeling their aesthetic ideas on the tango. Up to 1938 Pugliese new groupings that didn't consolidate, formed and he attempted without success to structure a work cooperative, as expression of its communist ideas.
Its definitive projection toward the tango that sought began August 11 1939, when showing up again in the National coffee. Amadeo Mandarino was its beginner's singer it orchestrates. After a time it rearmed the group, already with Augusto Gauthier like vocalist. Pugliese was managing, pianist and adjustor of that group that, that time yes, it worked like a cooperative. From a coffee of the neighborhood of Frizzy Villa they jumped to the most important radio in the moment, The World, being gestated an important one swollen that followed them, composed for fanatic from their style and followers to Communist Party.
The continuity in the work allowed him to secure its conception, supported in the contribution of his partners as the bassist Aniceto Rossi, so important to give him/her the rhythmic sense that he needed. Fundamental it was the bandoneón of Osvaldo Ruggiero, who remained next to Pugliese up to 1968, deeply consustanciado with the director. And another point can be said of the violinist Enrique Camerano, born - somebody said - to play with Pugliese. This it was affirmed as the faithfulest exponent in the style decareano, but with a rhythmic firm marcación, attractive for the dancer without hence to sacrifice quality.

It orchestrates Osvaldo Pugliese
Of supreme importance, for when their orchestra arrived to the disk in 1943, he was Roberto's appearance Chanel, hefty singer, of nasal voice and I am used "compadrito" that she left 31 recordings. Looking for a contrasting vocalist, Pugliese incorporated to Alberto Morán, dramatic and sensual, of strange aptitude for the stocking voice and perfect it couples with the orchestral accompaniment. Its attractiveness for the women was not equaled by any other singer. They were of Morán 48 recorded works. 8 hardly registered in turn, between 1949 and 1950, Jorge Vidal, another of the important voices in this orchestra's history. Among the later singers they stood out, although with repertoires of irregular quality, Jorge Maciel and Miguel Montero.
In the decade of the '40, Pugliese recorded some instrumental topics characteristic with those that he was early to the vanguard. It is the case of "La Yumba", (transformed into something like that as their orchestra's hymn) "Negracha" and "Malandraca." For these two last it considers it to him a precursor in the employment of the syncopation and the counterpoint, being ahead to Horacio Salgán and Astor Piazzolla. Other important tangos that Pugliese wrote and he/she interpreted they are, above all, the one mentioned "Recuerdo", and "La Beba", "Adiós Bardi", "Recién", "Barro", "Una Vez" and "El Encopao".
Per years, the orchestra of Osvaldo Pugliese was forbidden for the broadcasting, as measure of censorship politics, but it didn't achieve it to shrink its popularity.
