Playing Tango music with the Celtic Harp is something amazing .
It’s a perfect balance of passion, technique and fun.
Tango music is a huge source of inspiration and creativity, it is a style in which different genres and musical traditions can merge and create something new everyday.
Tango played with the Celtic Harp is however infrequent, to say the least.
Let’s say plainly that for celtic harpers it’s particularly difficult to approach musics that require to alterate notes outside of the key signature: levers aren’t quick and easy to bring up and down, and it may become very frustrating to approach a score with too many sharps or flats to be changed on the run.
This collection is just my point of view on Tango music; a point of view that comes from decades of concerts, research and recordings. The music I wrote for you here does not want to represent Tango in a historical or philological fashion, but rather to offer a set of appealing and entertaining pieces specifically wrote for our ancient and beautiful instrument.
