Concierto de Milonga (17’30)
Concierto de Milonga, Piano and Large Ensemble, Full Score
About this Work
Concierto de Milonga was commissioned by Solungga Liu and the Bowling Green State University New Music Ensemble. It is a piano concerto directly inspired by Argentine Tango from the 1920s through 1940s and is arranged according to the basic structure of a milonga (a tango social party). Two kinds of music are at play here: a more contemporary idiom presented in the introduction and two cortinas (interludes); and three tangos–tango, vals and milonga. The piece is dedicated to my wife, Winnie Cheung.
