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.
