family of musicians and artists. His uncle Giuseppe Bragato was the original author of

father, Enrico, was a flautist and had played in several orchestras of Udine. They lived at Giovanni D'Udine 10.

At the same time, Jose was the violoncellist of several quartets of classical music and

orchestras of tango. He was the violonvellist of the famous Pessina Quartet and of the

Orchestras of Francini Pontier and others of tango. In 1950, he began conducting orchestras, and at this time, each station had an orchestra and he was conducting and arranging peices for the Orchestra of National Radio, Radio Begrano, as well as many others.

The Vanguard of the Tango occured around 1954 with Astor Piazzolla and the OCTETO BUENOS AIRES. This was the sound that changed tango forever!

Jose became a solid composer of tangos and arranger for camera music, as a violoncellist soloist.

In 1976, he left Argentina and went to the Orchestra of Porto Alegre,

Brazil. After three years, he went to the Universidad of Natal, in North Brazil, and was a teacher of

camera music and conductor of several ensembles of camera music. He also founded

VIDA Y OBRA DE JOSÉ BRAGATO

En el 2007 escribí "La Vanguardia, de Entrecasa", donde narro la gran amistad musical, la hermandad en la vida, que mantuvieron José Bragato y Astor Piazzolla. El libro se consigue en la librería "Zival's" de la ciudad de Buenos Aires. En "La Vanguardia..." hay un capítulo dedicado especialmente a quien fue mi amiga de adolescencia, Diana Piazzolla, tal vez el único homenaje a la hija de Astor Piazzolla
