Misc. Comments

It is difficult to find the original instrumentation of this work. According to Grove Music, Gardel was a famous tango singer in Argentina, so this was undoubtedly composed for his own band, but the Grove article does not mention what the instrumentation of that band was. On the other hand, another of Gardel's works that is on IMSLP, El dia que me quieras, was published in 1935 for voice, 2 violins, viola, cello, bandoneón, piano. See Wikipedia article.
