This month, we celebrate the birthday of composer and guitarist Jorge Ruben Cardoso Krieger. Born in Argentina on January 26, 1949, Cardoso is famous for his Milonga in D minor which is TOP 47 on the list of the 100 most recorded original pieces for guitar.


I have found 226 recordings of his music, the latest being in January 2020 : Postcards for Guitar by Antonio Malinconico, where the artist plays no less than 4 compositions by Cardoso.


The Argentine composer penned more than 400 compositions. Through these, one can see his interest in Argentine and South-american musical forms. Nowhere is this more obvious than in his Suite de los Mita-I : 48 pieces, all in different dance forms of South America. So thank you and  ¡Feliz cumpleaños, maestro!
