Program Notes

Paconchita is a Latin overture dedicated to my parents, Paquito Navarro and Conchita González. It is a piece full of rhythm and energy with the percussion section having a great presence and highlighting the battery as group leader.

A great brass fanfare starts the overture, giving way to a much more rhythmic section in which give-and-take dialogues begin between the different sections of the band, with the battery being one of the protagonist instruments at all times. During the course of the work, we hear Latin rhythms fused with harmonies typical of Spanish folklore to create a seal of our land, the land which has seen the protagonists born and grow and to whom this work is dedicated: Paquito and Conchita.
