Item Number: S1.SMP-753

Astor Piazzolla's music lends itself well to the big band idiom, and Fred Sturm is a masterful arranger for big band. As recorded on "Libertango ! Hommage to Astor Piazzolla" (HR Big Band), this chart is a beautifully sensitive setting of a gorgeous ballad. There are different solo parts (Eb, Bb, C) for you to use in choosing your soloist. It is a solo feature throughout the chart. Sturm's orchestration and the climactic passage will tear your heart out," it is so intensely beautiful. This requires 4 clarinets and bass clarinet in the sax section with very easy-to-play parts.. The brilliant scoring of Sturm creates a "must have" chart for every band's library. 5-4-4-5 (opt. vibes/bells).
