testimonios acerca del libro

“I have dedicated my life to tango. It is the source of all my joy and my livelihood. So it is gratifying to know there are works afoot that will carry on this work. I have no doubt in my mind that this fundamental method will convey the subtleties of expression inherent to our popular music.”
Emilio Balcarce
“I welcome this work. It brings us closer to our roots through the works of succesful artists, bringing to light the complexity implicit in the music that characterizes the Argentine people the world over: tango.”
