                  II. Contemplativo

The second movement of a three-movement piece, this movement has its own special lyric and contemplative mood and serves as an isle of quietness between two volcanoes, in both atmosphere and instrumentation. This music expresses the principle: three bodies – one soul.

Argentinian Tangos (1996)                                                                                     arr.  Werner Thomas-Mifune

1.     La vi llegar - Enrique Fancini

2.     Cafetin de Buenos Aires – Mariano Mores

3.     Cristal – Mariano Mores

Werner Thomas-Mifune’s arrangements of Argentinean Tangos are published for string quartet and are performed from the original string quartet parts. The Tango is an Argentine genre of urban song and dance that has remained popular throughout the 20th century but which originated in the poor neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. The dance, for couples in a tight embrace, is characterized by very sensual movement. The music is frequently in a minor mode and includes dramatic rhythmic and dynamic contracts. Notes by Glenn Schaft.
