Program Notes

This work was composed on a boat ride from New Orleans to Cuba. In its premiere in May 1977 it was performed by David Amram’s jazz quartet, Pasquito D’Rivera, Arturo Sandoval, and other Cuban musicians. This was the first time since 1961 American and Cuban musicians had performed together. (Amram 2008, p. 88-89) One of the Cuban elements of the work is the use of the guaguanco, a rumba dance involving male and female partners. The orchestral premiere took place a few months later by the Brooklyn Philharmonic. The wind version was premiered by the Northern Illinois Wind Ensemble, Max Culpepper conductor.
