Following Alison Young’s noted tour of Argentina in 1998 and the release of her CD, this collection pulls together for the first time her arrangements and editions of music for flute and piano. Included are tangos and milongas, Astor Piazzolla’s popular Fuga y Misterio as well as a full-length suite of native dances written by tango legend, Maestro Horacio Salgán.

Fuga y misterio – Astor Piazzolla
Don Agustin Bardi – Horacio Salgán
Pastoral Calchaquí – Héctor Gallac
Milonga de dos hermanos – Carlos Guastavino
Suite Argentina – Horacio Salgán
Milonga sin Palabras – Astor Piazzolla
Chiquilín de Bachín – Astor Piazzolla
El Desbande – Astor Piazzolla
Lo que vendrá – Astor Piazzolla

Alison Young’s idiomatic arrangements of these lovely Argentinian pieces completely capture the heart and essence of the music. This collection showcases all the aspects of flute expression, from its most lyrical to the pure hot-blooded rhythmic vitality of the Tango! These pieces make either wonderful encores or a spicy addition to a flute recital.
