Program Notes

Galbraith's Habanera and Samba combine to create Dos Danzas Latinas, an elegantly seductive concert work that was premiered in February 2002 at the Centro National de las Artes in Mexico City. The woodwind octet, in two movements, was commissioned by Mexico’s Sinfonietta Ventus as part of a series of grants awarded to eleven composers.

The concept for these commissions fell loosely into the category of "a Sunday afternoon in the park" where symphonic bands or marimba bands might be found playing arrangements of a variety of classical and popular dance forms. The composers were encouraged to suggest the flavor and rhythms of these dances in a freer style, rather than adhere strictly to form.
