Fulvio Salamanca – Sus Grandes Exitos

Salamanca was at the piano in the original Juan D’Arienzo’s orchestra and recorded close to 400 numbers with it. Sadly, Salamanca’s talent did not shine with D’Arienzo, as it shone in the few recordings of the orchestra which he led himself.
Interesting to note, the relationship between D’Arienzo and Salamanca was symbiotic beyond music. The pianist has very strong political convictions and was frequently carted to jail. D’Arienzo, heavily using his popularity, always retrieved his lead pianist from jail.
