In response to the enthusiasm that met Tango Violin Duets, Universal Edition published these arrangements for violin and piano. The timbre of the violin is exceptionally well suited to evoking the musical riches of Argentina’s past, as well as giving new life to Gardel’s tango music. Some of his most well- known pieces are featured in this volume, such as Melodia de arraval, Mi Buenos Aires querido, Volver, Por Una Cabeza and El dia que me quieras. Diego Collatti’s arrangements retain all the captivating, magnetic charms we associate with the Tango. Suitable for intermediate to advanced violinists.
