Tango-Meister: Osvaldo Pugliese€19,50
Osvaldo Pugliese (1905-1995) kreierte einen neuen Stil der Tangomusik, der schön, warm und kraftvoll war – der leidenschaftlichste und intensivste, den der Tango jemals erlebte. 1939 gründete er aus einer Zelle des berüchtigtsten politischen Gefängnisses in Argentinien heraus sein Orchester. Jahrzehntelanger Verfolgung wegen seiner kommunistischen Überzeugungen trotzend, führte er schließlich seine Musiker sowie seine treuen Fans zu einer Nacht des Triumphs in einem der großartigsten Opernhäuser der Welt.
