Tango Doce is my twelfth tango, hence the name: "doce" means twelve in Spanish (it was preceeded by three tango-arrangements for two pianos, the Tango Concerto and the seven tangos of The Deadly Sins.)
The main theme is therefore, very appropriately, a twelve-tone theme - although the music is completely tonal.

It was written for Kjell Fagéus and Bengt Forsberg who premiered it in Allelgonakyrkan in Stockholm, 15th May 2010.
