Song Description

Gypsy tango for String Trio, Copyright © 2002 by Gary A. Edwards evokes the wild, romantic and carefree life of the Roma. Picture yourself at night in front of a crackling wood fire in the fresh air. Behind you the wagon is sitting patiently waiting, while the cart horses whinny. A gypsy violinist plays a haunting melody, with passion and fire, while a beautiful girl dances and whirls around the campfire. Copyright © 2003 by Gary A. Edwards. All rights reserved.

Story Behind the Song

I as talking to Gerard Mathes of the Micah Bay String Trio at an outdoor event in the summer of 2002 and offered to write a piece of music for the next year's program. He agreed that a tango would be an appropriate piece for a concert in the park. His group premiered the piece in the summer of 2003. Then, The Nevsky String Quartet of St. Petersburg, Russia offered to record and perform the piece so that was accomplished. Then, Scott Mayfield offered to arrange it for concert piano. The sheet music is available for sale. Contact Gary A. Edwards at gedward@roadrunner.com

Lyrics

Instrumental with this poem inspired by the music.


The Gypsy Tango for Soprano

(Intro - instrumental)

Dance,
Watch the Gypsy dance.
Makes me feel entranced, by his glance, full of fire.

Oh, what a passionate
Fire,
In his Gypsy eyes,
Makes me want to cry, want to die, in his glow.

Baila,
mira bailar el Gitano.
Cuando mueve me encanta,
la mirada
de fuego.

¡Que apasionados
ojos de fuego!
Quiero llorar,
y morir
en sus brazos.

Wouldn't it be very grand,
Joining his Gypsy band,
dancing across the land,
for a coin or two?

I want to be bold,
have a Gypsy soul.
Have him to hold,
me in his arms.

Tener la vida libre,
respirando el aire libre.
Volando en el aire,
como aguilas fuertes.

No quiero mas,
que juntarnos mas,
contigo para el futuro.

(Instrumental interlude)

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, ay ay.
La la la la la.
So____
¡Ay, Dios mio!

Storm, there's a storm, coming fast, will it last,
Oh, my blood's pounding faster and faster and Oh, my heart, my love.

Change, like the wind, like the dance, turning 'round, turning fast,
can this last? Where's my past? Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Not alone, like a stone. Not so cold again.
La, la la la la la la la la.
(Instrument)

Fantasies go twirling through my head, they go faster and
(Instrument
Heaven lasts a moment and it's gone in the past or
Real,. was it real or fantasy, my deep desires, or taste of the wine to my brain.
Was I clouded by the flash of the drum in the band of The Gypsy Tango?

(Optional repeat)
Humo del fuego sube arriba y arriba
hacer la escena oscuro y oscuro
Voces de gitanos resuenan en mi alma
Hipnóticas que me pegan al fondo de mi ser.

Angeles y diablos mezclados
Verdades no son claros. Me confunden los sonidos.
Soy pescado en el red de pescadores hermosos y magnéticos.

(Instrumental interlude)
Love, is what I want,
Is what I need, to complete, my destiny.
Time is not my friend,
why must it be my enemy?

Amar es vivir.
Es completar el sino de mi ser.
Vivir
memorias,
retratos de polvo
para el vejez.

(Vocal cadenza)
Desire from the burning fire
binds me to him.
Takes me higher to the passion within me.
Should I stay or go? I don't know. Oh,
why can't I do both?
Why do I have to decide.

Pasión
llena mi pecho.
Soy perdida, Ay.
Mundos nos separan.
¿Que voy a hacer?

(Final verse ostinato, harp plays melody)
Dawn.
Now's the time for me to choose.
Do I stay or go?
Do I win or lose?

Fate.
What does fate have in store for me?
What adventures will I see?
Passion fills my breast.
Will I ever rest for the rest of my life.
Will the melody,
of the Tango stay with me,
for the rest of my life?
