Tango-Toreador was, according to the cover of the original sheet music, introduced by The Marvelous (sic( Millers, an elegant dance duo who are depicted in an inset centrepiece against a colourful bullfighting scene in the background. The composition itself is a lively tango in a complex form and no doubt its performance by a recorder ensemble together with a elegant dancers would be very gratifying. It is characterised by its effervescent, tootling melodies enhanced by gentle echoes from the bass voices as well as the occasional dialogue between the upper voices, especially in the coda. All-in-all a well balanced piece and a must for a programme of dance music.
Tango-Toreador was published by Joe Morris Music Company, New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
