Don Agustin Bardi by Horacio Salgan
Arranged for Flute Choir by Alison Young
Score and parts
Insrumentation: piccolo, 2 c flutes, alto flute, bass flute
Horacio Salgán’s Don Agustin Bardi pays homage to the performer/composer who helped usher the tango out of its sordid past to become the signature music of an entire culture. Salgán himself was a legendary tango musician performing with his celebrated trio until his death at the age of 100. To capture the vigorous swagger of the bandonéon, Ms. Young gives the flutists a few, fun beat-boxing techniques plus their own moments to shine as soloists. Commissioned by the Upper Midwest Flute Association.
