Program Notes

A Little Tango Music (2007) is a short sequence of melodies inspired by the curvaceous, melancholic and dangerous dance from Argentina that is the tango. I have always been greatly inspired by the tango in all its guises, ranging from the Habanera in Bizet’s Carmen, through its more mysterious deployment in the music of Debussy and Ravel, and a more satirical approach adopted by Stravinsky and Kurt Weill, and perhaps most vividly conveyed in the seductively violent music of Astor Piazzolla. This miniature suite of three movements attempts to show in a trio of snapshots the varied moods and colors of the tango.
