Program Notes

One of Franco Ribate’s most legendary paso dobles, 'Agüero (1925) was dedicated to Martin Agüero Ereño, the bullfighter, who in turn would dedicate a bull to Franco Ribate, the conductor of the Bilbao Municipal Band.

- Program Note from Bilbao Municipal Band concert program, 19 July 2017

The paso doble, which is Spanish for "double step," is a Hispanic-derived dance that traces its roots hundreds of years back in time. With a traditionally relaxed tempo so fitting for flashing long skirts, castanets and stylized dance steps, this well-known work has been carefully edited by Robert Foster to bring it to audiences in an authentic and very musical edition.
