Here in one of the most famous paso dobles, the anticipation and pageantry as the matadors majestically enter the ring can be heard. This classic 1966 setting is a distinctive and important work for band.
- Program Note from publisher
In Spanish-speaking countries, the popularity of the paso doble (“double-step”) as a dance is inherent and perennial. The spirit and melodic appeal of the Argentine composer Terig Tucci have captured the imagination of international audiences. One of Tucci’s most famous paso dobles is Lola Flores. Here can be found all the color and excitement in the bull ring. One can instantly visualize the eager anticipation of the crowd and the prideful pageantry of the matadors as they majestically enter the ring.
- Program Note from liner notes of Mark Masters CD Wind Band Masterworks
Lola Flores, a dark-haired Spanish Flamenco dancer with a throaty voice and glittering dark eyes, was born in a small town in Andalucia. She began singing and dancing for the customers in her father’s bar as a child, and by 1952, at the age of 25, she was making a tour of the Americas. By 1965, she had made 33 films and 24 albums. Among her many admirers was Argentinian composer Terig Tucci.

Some sources credit singer Alfredo Sadel (1930-1989) as co-composer, although according to the publisher he was the lyricist for the original music from which the Krance arrangement was made.
