Tango for Gabriela has its foundations in several time-honored traditions: artistry inspired by the beauty of a woman, musical themes drawn from the letters in a name, and the tango as a representation of passion. Aldridge wrote this work at the behest of his friend, violinist Boris Kucharsky, who was enamored of a young woman he had just met: Gabriela Skrabakova, a model and actress from Slovakia. Says Aldridge of his work: I made these pitches [G, A, Bb, E, A for Gabriela; Eb(Es), E, A, Bb, A for her last name] into a melodic phrase which is essentially repeated through the entire piece, as though one were saying over and over: Gabriela, Gabriela...Gabriela Skrabakova.

Designed for use as a concert encore, the piece is short and taxes the violinist by covering the full range of the instrument.
