Detailed Description

Blue Tango composed by Leroy Anderson (1908-1975). Concert Band. Concert Band; SmartMusic. Symphonic Band. Grade 3. Conductor Score & Parts. 158 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.82361).

At the height of his career in the mid-1930s, Leroy Anderson began arranging for Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops Orchestra. Later, Fiedler encouraged him to write his own tunes for the Pops. His compositions, more than 50 in number, virtually define the sound of the contemporary American pops orchestra.

Blue Tango was a #1 hit in 1951, juxtaposing the charismatic melody over a traditional tango pulse. The work captured the spirit of an era. This new edition was originally arranged by the composer for concert band and has been freshly re-engraved with a full score for the first time, permitting a uniformity of articulation throughout the work. This title is available in SmartMusic.
