Program Notes

Regarding the tangos in the arrangement, they both originated as incidental music for a play in 1962. They eventually became part of a five-part series of “Ángel” tangos, completed in 1965. In 2005, Andy Pease arranged the two tangos into a two-movement concerto for flute and band. It premiered in 2006, with Leonardo Hiertz as the soloist.
