Tangos for piano, guitar, guitar and ‘cello, and piano and clarinet

Tango No. 1 is dedicated to Malgosia and her newborn.  I imagined  mother, with child in her arms, dancing to the rhythm of this tango.  Tango No. 2  is for  Diana, a  poet  and a  believer in sci-art quantum  physics of the everyday.  It is a slow and somber dance with the universe.  Tango No. 3 was  inspired by  Amanda, the mother character in The Glass Menagerie.   The music, like her memory,  is surreal and fantastic.  Tango No. 4 is for April an award winning dancer who taught me the basics of the tango.  Tango No. 5 is inspired by the great  tangos of Astor  Piazzolla.  Finally, Tango No. 6 is dedicated to the  Italian pianist, Giacomo Dalla Libera.  WN
