orchestras : salgan

Horacio Salgan's orchestra is considered by some people to be the ultimate evolution of the orquesta típica. Certainly Salgan brought a highly personal and individual style to the tango. A great innovator himself, at the celebration of his eightieth birthday in 1996 at the Academia Nacional del Tango in Buenos Aires, he made it clear that all innovation must be based in a thorough understanding of the tradition. He also expressed his sadness that the younger generation of musicians spoke about "improving" the Tango without having studied in depth the achievements and riches of the past, and his fear that the result would be loss and impoverishment.
