Tuomas Turriago: Tanguerengue for trumpet and piano


Venezuelan trumpet virtuoso Pacho Flores asked Tuomas Turriago to write a piece for a recital in April 2019. The composer tells: "My half-Colombian soul fell in love with the Venezuelan dance merengue at once when it was introduced to me and it has been an important construction material in my music ever since. I decided to combine two of my favourite rhythms, tango and merengue; hence the name Tanguerengue. It is one of my happiest compositions and gives an enormous amount of room for groovy rhythmical play and limitless trumpet virtuosity."
