Fueron Tres Años

Composer:Lyricist:Arranged by: 


I’ve added a new arrangement of Varela’s Fueron Tres Años!  I have to say, I wasn’t originally a fan of Varela.  I found it initially a little overblown and dramatic.  But there are a few songs that have become extremely popular with tango Djs and after hearing and dancing to this song several times, I’ve found a great deal of enjoyment…yes, it tends towards bombastic, but it has a driving beat, sweeping string lines and a powerful melody that offers lots of motivation for dance.  This version is arranged for Orquesta Tipica with Singer, and follows the Varela recording.

This chart is in F minor, and the range for the 1st violins is high, the piano part is also substantial, but otherwise, its a very accessible arrangement.  I would call it “intermediate” but easier-than-average for the bandoneon section… Your feedback and comments are very welcome.
