Description

Tangito by Brian Slawson is an excellent way for developing percussion students to dive into the passionate world of tango, storytelling through music, and the broader realm of Latin music.

The piece is anchored by the syncopated habanera rhythm, foundational to many of today's Latin music styles. Its measured tempo of 112 beats per minute will demand patience and rhythmic maturity from the performers, while the Adagio tempo section in the middle will really put their timing and groove maintenance to the test.

Slawson’s performance notes offer guidance for achieving the music's authentic flavor, while the clear, concise compositional style naturally guides the players towards the tango's characteristic feel.

Add a little sabor de pasion to your next percussion ensemble concert with Tangito!

This piece ships as a fully bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for either printing or tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

Glockenspiel

Xylophone

Vibraphone

2 Marimbas — (1) low A, (1) 4-octave

4 Timpani

Percussion — castanets, concert snare drum, suspended cymbal
