From the Publisher

Five tango favorites are presented as a musical dialogue. In this collection, the emotionally-charged tango meets the flute and its duo partner, the piano, for a charming musical experience.

Love, fire, passion - as one of the most emotionally-charged dances, the tango is an ideal match for the flute and its duo partner, the piano, as all three join in for a charming musical experience.

Argentine tango expert Diego Collatti has arranged five popular tangos originally composed by Carlos Gardel, who greatly influenced the genre with his interpretations and compositions. The lively, electrifying arrangements for flute and piano show Collatti's expertise for instrumentation and reduction as they combine technique and ensemble playing with the glamour and unique atmosphere of South American passion for dancing. With this collection, the musical life of Argentina during the late 20th century - a heritage that is treasured to this day and has currently reached a new popularity - is carried into the world. In a diverse and always authentic musical setting, both voices enter a dialogue of emotions, zeitgeist and character typical for the dance, which is popular around the world. These aspects are essential for diving completely into the music and musically expressing its deeply emotional content.
