Scores and recordings by Bert Alink

A Media Luz - E. Donato

arr: B. Alink

My version of this very well known tango. I found the sheet music for piano on Todo Tango, together with a sound file of an orchestra playing this piece. I've heard other versions of this piece, which were a lot slower, so anything goes. In the piano score the measures 30 to 37 were the same as the first part, which gave too many repetitions in my opinion. To give it a different feel, I transposed the melody 1 octave and also changed some notes to keep it playable as a bass line under the violin part as played in the orchestra arrangement mentioned above. The MP3 here is played with a capo in third position, mainly because of the change in sound that suits this piece.

Ausencia!... - J.C. Duran

This is an old tango. Do not confuse it with 'Ausencias' by Astor Piazzolla.

Celos / Jealousy - J. Gade

arr: B. Alink

added: 2015-08-24 21:56:44

Arrangement of a very famous tango piece. Although written by a Dane, it's still Latin enough to be in the Latin American section, in my opinion.

I could find no information about this tango's composer, but it was recorded by Francisco Canaro's Orchestra with vocals by Charlo in 1928.

The pdf with score also includes tablature.

El Dia Que Me Quieras - C. Gardel

arr: B. Alink

added: 2015-08-23 12:24:10

(English: The Day That You Love Me)

Most famous tango of Carlos Gardel, with words by Alfredo Le Pera. I love the arrangement Victor Villadangos made (CD Naxos 8.555721), but this one is easier to play.

This is an easy arrangement by Ramon Jose Verdi. As I couldn't find the website on which it was first published, I also included the score here.

Volver - C. Gardel

arr: B. Alink

added: 2015-08-24 22:00:07

I added a second score to this piece, which maybe is a bit harder, but also more beautiful, I hope. This score is with tablature underneath the normal score. There is a recording of both arrangements.
