I'm delighted to say that we can present this new published arrangement of this much-loved classic from Astor Piazzolla. Several euphonium artists including Steven Mead have performed and recorded this work, and this appears to be a virtually identical arrangements to those played by these artists during the last years.
Congratulations to Luc Vertommen and his company Brass Press VOF For now making this available. It's sure to be very popular indeed.
"Histoire du Tango" Is one of the most famous compositions by tango composer Astor Piazzolla, originally written for flute and guitar in 1986. It was Piazzolla's lifes work to bring the tango from the bordello's and dance halls of Argentina Into the concert halls of Europe and America. It attempted to convey their history and evolution of the tango in four movements, Bordello 1900, Cafe 1930, Nightclub 1960, and Concert d'Aujourd'hui.
Cafe 1930 describes another age of the tango. People stopped dancing it as they did in 1900, preferring instead simply to listen to it. It became more musical, and more romantic. This tango has undergone total transformation: the movements are slower, with new and often melancholy harmonies. Tango orchestras came to consist of two violins, two concertinas, a piano, and a bass. The tango is sometimes sung as well.
