Tango No. 1 in G Minor
Uploaded on Aug 2, 2018
Here goes--this is both my first tango and my first piano-&-non-piano duet!
I played bass clarinet in 3 school concert bands, and I still have a soft spot for that instrument. That's why I picked bass clarinet for this duet.
I've listened to quite a lot of tangos lately--Libertango, Tango Pour Claude, Tango of the Troupple King--and I listened to a bunch more tangos here on Musescore so I could make this one sound somewhat authentic. The piano in this piece uses a rhythmic pattern common in 19th-century tangos.
One default sound font update later, I still have to say this: please forgive the bad default bass clarinet sound font, its inability to play slurred passages properly, and its difficulty with playing fast notes.
Tangos demand that you get the articulations right or they don't sound as imperious or wistful as they fully could be. Here's hoping I did a good job with the articulations!
