Ignacio Corsini

Ignacio Corsini was a well-known Argentine folklore and tango vocalist.

"El Caballero Cantor"the "gentleman singer," as he was known by thenCorsini was also a composer and lyricist of numerous tangos, such as, among others, "Flor marchita," and "Aquel cantor de mi pueblo" (music by guitarist Enrique Maciel). The latter was immortalized by Corsini's one-time film co-star, Edmundo Rivero. He also composed in other genres, writing folklore pieces (such as "Tradicion gaucha" and "A mi palomita"), and a waltz: "Tristeza criolla," based on a poem by Julian de Charras.

Corsini reappeared in 1961 for a Channel 7 special, "Volver a vivir" ("To Live Again"). This would be his last public performance, however, and on July 26, 1967, the 'gentleman singer' died at age 76.
