When he was still in elementary school, Marcos Mundstock stood out at school events because he made everyone laugh with his particular way of talking. The years passed, finished high school, studied engineering, left, studied speech, graduated... He worked as a broadcaster and joined a choir where he met his future partners from the humor . Marcos laughed at remembering how he went so many laps with his vocation if, from a young age, he was marked by the talent of making him laugh.
Can you calculate how many people Les Luthiers made laugh ? With a lot of ingenuity, the Spanish newspaper El País tried. There are more than ten million, they say, only if we count those who witnessed their theatrical shows. The curious calculation arose in the face of the sad news of the death, at the age of 77, of the founder of this great artistic collective. In this way, there are already two original lutiers who died , shortly after the five years of Daniel Rabinovich's departure.
Mundstock left this world after going through a long illness. He had announced his temporary withdrawal from the scenarios, on medical advice, because of a problem he had been suffering.
There are many creations of this great humor that are already part of Argentine culture . With its characteristic record of grave voice, how can we forget those introductory stories to most of the works of each show? Mundstock made us know Johann Sebastian Mastropiero, whose supposed life and work are based on many of the musical pieces that the group performs deliciously.
Marcos was born in the capital of the province of Santa Fe on May 25 . His parents arrived in Argentina before Nazism, but he claimed that all the rest of his near ancestry had been killed by the brutal regime. He also claimed that all this Jewish-European tradition marked him in his interest in the artistic world.
Mundstock lived in Buenos Aires since he was seven years old. Not well he founded the group, he took over the librettos of almost all the shows and the lyrics of most of the first songs.
As an instrumentalist, he played the gom-horn , a kind of trumpet made with a hose and a funnel that intervened in several musical works by Les Luthiers and the desopilant Recited Gauchesco .
Goodbye and forever, Mark Mundstock! Your departure, not by any means, will make you stop making us laugh.
