Aníbal Troilo (1914–1975) played the bandoneón with such feeling that he became revered as the most expressive player of the instrument. In 1937 he formed his own orchestra, rapidly establishing it as one of the greatest in the golden age of tango. The hallmarks of this orchestra were its vibrant sound, its ability to deliver a lyric, and the colour and shading in its music, something which Troilo and his musicians explored more and more throughout the 1940s.In this book, the first in a series called Tango Masters, Michael Lavocah (author of Tango Stories, Musical Secrets) explains Troilo’s music to the modern dancing public. He introduces the musicians in the orchestra, helping you to hear them within the music, and then takes you through the dance recordings, paying special attention to the relationship between the music and the lyrics – a key factor to understanding this orchestra. Incorporating an invaluable discography, 'Tango Masters: Aníbal Troilo' allows the reader to follow Troilo’s journey as his music grows in sophistication, learning how to listen, and thus to feel, with more understanding and depth.
I'm bi-lingual and appreciated the author's command of the Spanish language, especially the Lunfardo (slang) of Buenos Aires. Much of the information presented in this book is not available anywhere else to “English only readers”. For example, the side-by-side, English-Spanish lyric translations are linguistically accurate and also capture the complex emotions of the tango.
There is a real shortage of authoritative tango books in English because most simply focus on someone's person experience with the tango. However, this book is meticulously researched, well documented and well written. Plus, it is interesting and fun to read. Finally, the book contains an excellent discography, an appendix on orchestra formations, a detailed bibliography and is well indexed.
This book is much more than just another good read on the tango. Thank you Michael. Five Stars!
And what is outstanding is the detailed discussion of many tracks, where I discovered new details of music I had listened to thousands of times and discussed myself in my teaching. Troilo's music is rather complex, and many tango dancers find it difficult to dance to it. Michael Lavocah's discussions really help to find an approach to it and I'm sure they help to eventually love Troilo's beautiful music.
