Orlando Goñi (1914 - 1945)

The short life of Orlando Goñi did not allow him to record much, but he was described as a pianist of clean phrasing (minimal use of the pedals) with soft sounds, who was imaginative and influenced by jazz music, as demonstrated by his use of syncopation. He studied with Argentina’s most renowned classical piano pedagogue, Vicente Scaramuzza (he also taught Martha Argerich, Enrique Barenboim [Daniel’s father], Horacio Salgán and Osvaldo Pugliese, among others), but he soon discovered tango and his bohemian life finished him too early.
