New Music Friday: Tango del Sol Brillante

Tango del Sol Brillante, or “Tango of the Bright Sun”, is an exotic, engaging and playful dance with catchy melodies and a fun rhythmic pulse enhanced by percussion instruments. Its suave feel and instant appeal to the ear will transport you to Argentina and back.

The rhythmic pattern of the main theme is intended to work on hooked bows in a way that is simple, repetitive, and accessible to the students. Lifts and bowing patterns are clearly marked for maximized efficiency in your classroom. Cellos and violas get a chance to shine at letter D. Optional percussion parts are included; they can enhance your sound and feature students wanting to try something different, but they are not necessary to perform the piece.
