The Stroh Violin in Tango

We know it when we hear it.  We had learned the name and seen a picture of this interesting instrumental contraption while in Buenos Aires… but we always forgot it!  It was only today that Jorge finally discovered the “violin corneta” again when La 2×4 radio station discussed Julio De Caro.

As is the bandoneon, the violin corneta is a German invention

“In 1920s Buenos Aires, Julio De Caro, a renowned Tango orchestra director and violinist, used it in his live performances, and was called “violin corneta” (cornet violin) by the locals.”  – Wikipedia

About Movement Invites Movement

We are relatively young Argentine Tango dancers and teachers who are married both to each other and the dance. We truly found Tango after making an 8-month Tango pilgrimage to Buenos Aires and we are using this blog to share our thoughts and feelings about our Tango experiences. We are not aspiring authors and our writing skills are questionable, but we write our truth. View all posts by Movement Invites Movement
