Tango, Tárrega | Grade 5 Guitar duet (arranged for ensemble) – NYGE

Watch the National Youth Guitar Ensemble (NYGE) perform our Grade 5 piece Tango. This piece was arranged by Helen Sanderson as a duet on our Grade 5 Guitar syllabus. Helen is the Director of NYGE and also kindly arranged the piece specially for this ensemble performance.

Spanish guitarist and composer Francisco Tárrega was largely responsible for the revival of the guitar as a solo instrument in the years around 1900. This piece is called Tango after the national dance of Argentina which is popular all over the Spanish speaking world.
