  • Your majesty the 'Fueye (slang for bellow),this Wagnerian bird arrived in Argentina because it knew Anibal Troilo would be born there.

    (Horacio Ferrer)

  • "There isnt an old tango nor a new tango. Tango is one. Perhaps the only difference is between those who do it well and those who dont." Anibal Troilo

  • "The bandoneon has seduced me since childhood. Since I didnt have one, I used to practice with a pillow over my legs. When I was 9 years old, as a child's prank, I got on a stage and I placed a fueye over my knees for the first time. I never removed it. It was love at first sight. Anibal Troilo

  • "Of all the tangos I composed, Sur and Responso are my favorites. In other words, the two I love the most. The inspiration for Responso came one night while playing blackjack with some friends in my home; I... felt like I was not there. It was 4 am in the morning when I suddenly went to my room and started playing a few notes. Responso started to come up! I think this is the best tribute we could give to Homero Manzi. Anibal Troilo

  • Pichuco had a well-earned reputation as a chubby good man, helpful and generous. Zita, the love of his life used to say: "One day I reproached his working every night with the quartet, even though we no longer were short of money. He replied: "How are the singer and his six children going to eat? If I dont work he doesnt work either

  • "When playing, the chubby man used to close his Asian eyes, forget everything and let the musses guide him to unknown hidden places until a strange force, probably the enthusiastic applauses, returned him to reality. He always kept the secret of his escape."

  • "Why should I go if I am always coming back!"
