“A Tango in Birmingham? Absolutely!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is such a good piece! It captures all the essence of a tango, is written to be played by mixed abilities with something for everyone, and is short and to the point so it's practically perfect. A Tango in Birmingham? Absolutely!

From the Publisher

An unapologetically "tangoey" Tango, first conceived as a warm-up piece for a group of over 150 flautists at the Birmingham Flute Choir Festival in March 2024, and here presented in a slightly smaller, more accessible version, without the Contra Flutes. The strident minor key 'A' section featuring, initially, the 1st and 2nd Flutes alternates with a more dolce, lyrical 'B' theme, which is first presented by the 4th Flutes and Alto Flutes. Everybody gets a chance for melodic material though, and there is plenty to work on in term of dynamics, articulation and style. Very enjoyable to play, and to listen to!

Performance duration (approx): 2'45

Difficulty guide: 4-8
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is total beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
