Program Notes

This piece is based on the description of a journey to get to the city of Limón, in Costa Rica. The composer writes: “We were very happy travelling to Limón… but, suddenly, there was a crumble on the Zurquí road. Well, time to make a detour to the old road. Five hours to get there! But it was a beautiful trip….” And he continues describing every landscape, every village and all the events seen along the road. He uses Costa Rican popular genres and rhythms to picture this journey.
