Tune of the Day: Don Pedro

Tango criollo by Angel Villoldo

In 1911, on a visit to Buenos Aires, the famous Italian composer Pietro Mascagni conducted his opera Isabeau at the Teatro Coliseo. A little bit later, Ángel Villoldo paid a tribute to the composer of Cavallería rusticana by publishing the instrumental tango “Don Pedro”, which Villoldo dedicated “to the eximious Italian maestro Pietro Mascagni”.
