Product details

Why is classical music seen as stuffy? Serious? Boring? In 1988, I devised a tango-based performance piece of domestic sound sources from kitchens and sheds to counter this prejudice. The performers need to be as talented as ever: they just change the way they play their instruments (with extended techniques and tunings) and what instruments they play.

It is meant to be harmless fun with a chance for normally well-behaved musicians to let their hair down in an ensemble situation. Doing the AO Tango was revised in 1991.

Pages: 1 score (11p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Professional.

Duration: 4 min.

Humorous encore piece for chamber ensemble.
