Overview

Tango: A ballroom dance of Latin-American origin characterized by long pauses and stylized body positions. This musical form was subsequently adopted by other countries, primarily France, Spain and Italy. Many prominent composers have applied it to a wide variety of compositions. Using piano scores in both the Latin-American and Spanish rhythmic traditions, Gary Dahl has skillfully compiled and arranged French Tangos for Accordion. The music in this anthology was originally published from the late 1930's to 60's and is characterized by its romanticism, rich harmonies, and emotive melodies. These arrangements are orchestral in nature, befitting the accordion's various timbres and capabilities. In standard notation.
