Brano tratto dal Concerto Estudiantina Ensemble Bergamo - http://www.estudiantinabergamo.it/ - del 19 giugno 2009, organizzato dal Comune di Bergamo ed inserito nella rassegna Bergamo Estate. Il concerto si è svolto nella ex chiesa della Maddalena in Bergamo. "Tango" è stato composto dal musicista Amadeo Amadei (1866-1935).

Amedeo Amadei (Loreto 1866 -- 1935) was a musician by family tradition: the
Amadeis, in fact, can boast three generations of musicians: from father to son, they have given their service as organists, choirmasters and composers at the Santuario Mariano di Loreto. In 1869, at the age of three, little Amedeo was in Turin with his father Roberto for a concert of the Loreto choral, and was pointed at by don Giovanni Bosco as the future and most meaningful musician of the Amadeis. At four he wrote his first composition, while "Piccola Marcia", first edited, bears the words:" By A. Amadei, seven years old". At twenty, he took the diploma in composition at the Accademia Filarmonica di Bologna and three years later the diploma in piano, with full marks again.
He was from time to time organist, piano concert artist, choirmaster and conducted orchestras, as well as military bands and plucked-string orchestras: as a composer, he wrote for various ensembles and for all musical genres, from vaudeville to sacred music.
His long-lasting presence in Bergamo as a conductor of the 73th Infantry Regiment explains his deep bond of affection with the city, the music colleagues and the "beloved Estudiantina". His close friendship with P. Mascagni was renowned: this last used to go to Loreto every summer to meet his friend.
