This piece originates from the suggestions of two poems by J. L. Borges: the poem Sueño and the milonga collection Para las seis cuerdas. The composer explored the tango’s poetics, not by recalling its most immediate dimension, but rather evoking some of its elements in the dimension of dream, following the poet’s vision more than the musician’s. The form develops out of some rhythmical, melodic and harmonic elements, which are merely alluded to and transfigured as they reach a climax of intensity, later to dissolve once more in the dimension of dream.
