arrangers & composers

If you would like to arrange or compose tango music and be able to premiere your music played by the TFM resident ensemble or your own tango ensemble, do not miss this opportunity!

  • Arrangers & composers should apply to be accepted. Application available on this website on December 11, 2023.
  • Participants must bring a new arrangement or piece to premiere at the edition.
  • Participants can choose the type of ensemble to write for.
  • Spots will be granted on a first-come-first-serve basis after application. 

An online, 3-month “Musical Tutorial Writing Course” will be offered (for an extra cost) for the writing process, keeping in mind that during the TFM week it is not possible to have enough time for developing new tools.

The arranger or composer could choose to write for any of these three ensemble types:

  • TFM Resident Ensemble
  • Own Pre-formed Ensemble
  • Other Ensemble


  • It should be an original arrangement or original composition. The goal is to take this opportunity to explore new writing and generate one space for musical exploration for the participants.
  • It should be written for an ensemble of at least four instruments.
  • The duration of the music should be between 2 and 4 minutes.


Arrangers should fill out the application form available on this page from December 11, 2023 to March 3, 2024.
In the application form we will request the following:
1. Specify for what type of ensemble the arrangement/composition will be made.
2. Include a score of a previous arrangement or composition, or the new music already written, in PDF + audio.
