Musician, pianist, leader and composer
(January 27, 1905 - January 24, 1973)
Full Name: Ricardo Tanturi
Nickname: El caballero del tango Though he never stood out for his musical skills, Tanturi led for several decades a renowned orchestra which owed its success basically to the strong appeal of some of its singers. For this reason, the instrumental pieces played by his mediocre orchestra are few and little recalled. However, his fame would persist along time and in the last years with the success of tango dancing, Tanturi recordings are perhaps the favourite.
