13 Tango Passions for Mandolin and Guitar

13 Tango Passions for Mandolin and Guitar composed by Ely Karasik. Arranged by Ronald Grosswiler. For Mandolin. Saddle-stitched, Duets. Dance. Intermediate. Book. 104 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99379).

ISBN 9780786638123. Dance. 11.75 x 8.75 inches.

The thirteen compositions contained in this collection were originally self-published by composer/mandolin virtuoso Ely Karasik in three separate volumes: Tango Passions, Tango Moods, and Tango Memories. They were composed specifically to provide repertoire for the guitar/mandolin duo in which the guitar serves as an equal partner and not just accompaniment. Each of these original tangos has a Spanish title suggesting a particular feeling. This publication includes separate parts for the mandolin and guitar as well as a combined score. All of the parts are written in notation only.

    This is a super collection of original pieces By Ely Karasik. I play in a mandolin orchstra with the 2 authors of this book, and we perform many of these pieces. A must have for guitarist and mandolinists.
