About this exposition

The artistic research question I wanted to define a role for myself in tango as a cellist, making it a more soloistic role, and I wanted to learn how can I go deep into the style so that I could reflect it in my performance. At first I thought I would do that through writing arrangements for cello in small ensembles (duets and trios), which was reflected in the research work shown in Appendix 1, and also in my initial question. However, later on I understood that writing arrangements is more an outcome than a mean of my research, and that a solo piece would better reflect what I wanted to achieve. How do I learn a set of skills which would help me to play tango on the cello as a soloist by going deeper into the tango techniques and learning from tango instruments in order to create and perform my own arrangement of a tango piece for cello solo?
