    Instrument: clarinet quintet (score and parts)
    Grade: medium
    Catalogue No: 5501
    ISMN No: 9790570275434

    Three tangos of medium difficulty evocative of the avenidas and barrios of South America. Melancholic, nostalgic, sultry and seductive, the tango was once dubbed a scandalous pastime, with its smile of hope, and lament of bitterness, set to the sob of the bandonion, but here transcribed for clarinet quintet.

    ... Araña de la Noche • Tango Bresilienne • Tango de la Luna
