Tango - a dance, a music genre, an awareness of life, 'a sad thought that can be danced' (according to a tango composer). The terms and definitions are as varied as the range of styles of the works. The present volume deliberately presents four entirely different characters: 'Jalousie' by the Danish composer Jacob Gade which probably is the best-known dance tango; 'Mi Buenos Aires Querido', a work by the classical Argentine composer Carlos Gardel; 'Tango appassionato' by Eduard Putz, a 'tango nuevo' in the tradition of Astor Piazzolla; and finally, 'La Paloma' by Sebastian der Yradier, a tango arrangement of the title that, according to GEMA, is the most popular melody of the 19th century. The arrangements for string quartet are melodious and easy to play, a delight for both performers and audience alike. A double-bass part (ad libitum) is included to complement the sound.
