EDUARDO BIANCO IN GREECE

Visiting Athens for the first time in 1929 for a series of concerts, Eduardo Bianco became very popular during the 1930s and had a special relationship with Greece, both living and working there.

The repertoire of the orchestra included pieces of his own composition and adaptations of pieces by other composers, covering the entire spectrum of Latin American music, even some Greek tango. In Greece he met and worked with many well known Greek artists, musicians, songwriters and singers (Michael Sougioul, Alexos Sakellarios, Danae , Joseph Corinthian Photis Polimeri etc.)

A number of tangos were adapted for and sung by Greek singers with Greek lyrics. He composed 22 songs for the operetta "Argentinos" with lyrics by Alexos Sakellarios, staged in the theatre "Kentrikon" in 1937, and with record revenues. The success of the orchestra lasted until the war.
After the war Bianco returned to Greece, he moved to Athens and made some appearances with a few musicians in the "Green Park" and elsewhere until 1950, when he returned to Buenos Aires.
