G012 Por una Cabeza - Gardel, C. PDF DOWNLOAD


Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar famously danced to this thrilling Tango in the 1992 film Scent of a Woman. This glorious piece is full of contrast: the tender major key sections feature a tentative tune/duet set against a simple accompaniment, whereas the minor key sections are full of hot-blooded passion, with a soaring melody, full harmonies and elaborate counter melodies. Works equally well for 6 or 7 solo players or a large ensemble.
