Claro de Luna (the “Moonlight Sonata” Tango)

piano

Claro de Luna is an Argentine tango-style adaptation of the well-known first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s piano sonata no. 14 in C# minor, “Quasi una fantasia”, Op. 27, no. 2, popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata. Dark, bold, and passionate, this adaptation remains true to the original’s harmony, melody, and form. Its edge and driving energy derive from Argentine tango’s characteristic rhythms and sharply accented beats.

As such, they probably sound much different from the Aquarelles or even the more ‘open’ Piano Set, and the player may […]

The prelude establishes harmonic and melodic materials which are utilized throughout the suite. The following four pieces capture a generalized characteristic of their historical namesakes. A nine-tone scale is used in all […]

    Cast in the traditional three movements — fast, slow, fast — influence and indebtedness to Bartók is noticeable in the two outer movements. In the meditative slow movement, there are allusions both to Beethoven’s 3rd concerto, with its dialogue-like alternation between soloist and orchestra, and in the main body of the movement, a nod to […]

Movement one is dominated by a satirical character of extreme contrasts in dynamics, abrupt gestures, and pauses. Its organization might be described as “quasi sonata form”, since […]
