Tango: A ballroom dance of Latin-American origin characterized by long pauses and stylized body positions. This musical form was subsequently adopted by other countries, primarily France, Spain and Italy. Many prominent composers have applied it to a wide variety of compositions. Using piano scores in both the Latin-American and Spanish rhythmic traditions, Gary Dahl has skillfully compiled and arranged French Tangos for Accordion. The music in this anthology was originally published from the late 1930's to 60's and is characterized by its romanticism, rich harmonies, and emotive melodies. These arrangements are orchestral in nature, befitting the accordion's various timbres and capabilities. In standard notation.

    Lots of difficult bass stuff but then who said it was going to be easy. You need to work at these songs but it is good self improvement if you keep at it. Biginners and intermediates, stay away.

  • May 25, 2005 Great Introduction to French Tangos

    The tangos in Gary Dahl's "French Tangos for Accordion" are challenging and beautiful. From the classic "El Choclo" to the melodious and gently flowing "Telephonez Moi Cheri" each of these wonderful tangos is a gem. The included CD is worth the price of the book. Dahl gives a masterful...

    rendition of each arrangement. Highly recommended.
