Program Notes

El Cid musically portrays the thrilling adventures and conquests of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, a nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain. Called “El Cid” (the Lord) by the Moors and “El Campeador” (the champion) by Christians, his military prowess and epic exploits have made him the national hero of Spain.

After an exciting introduction, an infectious Spanish rhythmic ostinato undergirds the main theme, driving the piece as it builds. Ample percussion, including an important tambourine part, contributes to the Spanish feel.”

-Program Note by composer


The thrilling adventures and conquests of a nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain are vividly portrayed in this striking selection. An infectious Spanish rhythmic ostinato provides a constant drive that supports the main theme for an unrelenting forward motion. Ample percussion, including an important tambourine part, contributes to the colorful Spanish feel.
