Program Notes

This work represents a musical panorama of the beautiful Mediterranean coastline in southern Spain. Chord progressions common to Spanish flamenco guitarists have been crafted into a spirited and beautiful setting of three authentic folk dance forms: the corrida, the jota and the fandango.

Opening with a fiery statement reminiscent of the traditional bullfights, a quick folk dance (Jota) follows, utilizing traditional Spanish percussion. A lush alto saxophone solo introduces the middle section, a lyrical folk dance (Fandango), with the fiery Jota returning to conclude the piece.
