COMPOSER(S): Deborah Baker Monday
Tango Adagietto is an instrumental solo by Deborah Baker Monday. The popular Argentinian partner dance has been the inspiration for many composers in many genres since it emerged ca. 1880. It has all the articulations and dynamics to give it the "spice" it needs for the style. Ms. Monday used the term "adagietto" in the title not only because it has a nice ring to it, but also because it represents the tempo for the piece. "Adagietto" is slightly faster than "adagio" and the composer thought it might imply a lighter feel than some tempo markings. Exercises are provided that offer great preparation for rhythms, bowings, and the various forms of the G minor scale. Have students listen to other versions of a tango so they get a true sense of how to interpret this piece.
