Por Una Cabeza
Composer: Gardel C.
Level: C

‘Por una Cabeza’ is a tango song written in 1935 with music by Carlos Gardel and lyrics by Alfredo Le Pera. The name is a Spanish horse-racing phrase meaning ‘by a head’, which refers to a horse winning a race narrowly - by just the length of its head. The lyrics speak of a compulsive horse-track gambler who compares his addiction for horses with his attraction to women. The PDF also contains parts for violin III (doubling that of the viola) and contrabass. Click here to listen to a recording of the piece.
