It Don’t Mean a Thango is a modern take on the traditional tango style. The parts are carefully crafted to ensure each player has a special technique to hang their hat on. While challenging syncopated rhythms and accidentals will keep players on their toes, this three-minute work is sure to be a fun and rewarding piece to perform. This edition is for flexible ensemble. Also available are editions for string quartet, saxophone quartet, recorder quartet and clarinet quartet.Fullscreen Mode
