Weekend Competition Double Bill…

GetAttachmentThumbnailThis weekend’s competition features two piano resources which I hope will be of interest.

The first is a collection of 12 Tangos, written by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla (1921 – 1992), arranged by Rachel Chapin, and published by Boosey and Hawkes. Each piece contains all the expected tango inflections, incorporated alongside elements of classical music and jazz. The works would suit those of Grades 3 – 5 (ABRSM; approximately intermediate level). The selection ranges from Libertango and Milonga for Three, to Vuelvo al Sur and Sin Rumbo.

The second book, Piano Village, is a selection of original compositions, written by Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin (1957 – ) also published by Boosey and Hawkes. Consisting of 25 works, this generous volume features some of Kats-Chernin’s most well-known pieces including Eliza’s Aria. Ranging in difficulty, these gems are generally for more advanced players, and are often highly rhythmic, patterned and Minimalist in style.

To win, please leave a comment in the comment box at the end of this post, and I will select two winners on Sunday evening (British time). Good luck!

You can find out more about Piazzola’s Tangos here and about Piano Village, here.

  1. I would love to win either of these, but especially the Piano Village book which sounds intriguing from your description!

  2. I love those tangos and would dearly love to teach some simpler versions to my students. well, to be totally honest, i wouldn’t mind playing some easier ones myself!!

  3. Oh wow! I am not familiar with either of these publications. I’m excited about the tangos in particular because I know they would appeal to several of my students.

  4. This is so awesome!! I love Tangos! And the pieces in Piano Village are beautiful. I would love to win. Great addition to my repertoire.
