Program Notes

Transcribed for wind ensemble by Mark Scatterday of Eastman School of Music, Alegría (happiness) was inspired by the playful mood and 6/8 meter pattern often found in music from Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. Out of a simple pulse and simple folk-like tunes evolve a complex web of harmonies and rhythmic interactions that oftentimes dissolve into a fast vortex of sound, to resume again to the initial playful mood. The harmonies too follow a similar path of evolution: from simple consonances to colorful dissonances.
