About this title


A stunning sampler of romantic piano solos from the early days of the tango. Here is the first extensive collection of early tango music ever published outside of Argentina. This anthology presents 42 facsimile piano scores in a wide range of tango styles found in 19th century Argentina and Uruguay. Selections include classics by Argentina's and Uruguay's most famous guardia vieja (old guard) composers, written druring the tango's formative years between 1900 and 1920. Many off these pieces evoke musical parallels with American piano rags of the same era. These wonderful early tangos embody the full emotional depth and rhythmic complexity of this fascinating genre, yet are accessible to players of varied abilities.

About the Author:

Dance musician and pianist Bill Matthiesen has researched early Argentine tangos and music of the ragtime era for 15 years. As a musician for historic dance recreations he has performed from Alaska to Maine, including at the Cincinnati Vintage Dance Week and the Scott Joplin ragtime Festival. He's produced The Waltz Books I & II and several recordings, including early Argentine piano tangos on Tango Viejo; film and television music on American Period Dance Music for the German Sonotone label; ragtime dance music and tangos on Now Tango; and music from the 1860s on The Civil War Ballroom.
