Osvaldo Pugliese and his older brothers played violin. The piano eventually won Osvaldo’s affection and he was subsequently trained at the conservatory. After performing in many tango groups in association with Gobbi, Troilo and Laurenz, he was able to form his own orchestra. His music is imbued with his very personal style, with strong counterpoint, dissonances and rhythmic flair, all elements that make the tango A los artistas plásticos (‘Homage to the Visual Artists’), a perfect example of Pugliese in the 1960s.
