Instrument Piano
Difficulty Upper advanced
Accompaniment Piano solo

Score Information


The famous Tango "Por una Cabeza", used a great deal in the cinema, was composed by Carlos Gardel in 1935 on a text by Alfredo Le Pera, whose principal theme was probably inspired from Mozart's Rondo in C Major for violin and orchestra, K. 373. The protagonist evokes his addiction for horse racing by drawing a parallel with his attraction to women, hence the title, literally "just for a head", ie. of a woman or a horse.

Play the score of "Por una Cabeza" by Gardel arranged for upper advanced level solo piano and listen to the professional recording of the piece synchronised with the score just for pleasure or for inspiration.
