Mel Bay Presents Argentinean Tangos for Keyboard
Bill MattheisenISBN: 0786635347;
A stunning sampler of romantic piano solos from the early days of the tango. Here is the first extensive collection of early tango music ever published outside of Argentina. This anthology presents 42 facsimile piano scores in a wide range of tango styles found in 19th century Argentina and Uruguay. Selections include classics by Argentina's and Uruguay's most famous guardia vieja (old guard) composers, written druring the tango's formative years between 1900 and 1920. Many off these pieces evoke musical parallels with American piano rags of the same era. These wonderful early tangos embody the full emotional depth and rhythmic complexity of this fascinating genre, yet are accessible to players of varied abilities.
