Program Notes

From Victoriano Valencia comes a collection titled Ritmos de la Tierra (Rhythms of the Earth). The collection comprises ten pieces based on Colombian and other Latin American dance patterns. By selecting these musical genres, the composer intends to explore different sections of the band to highlight their particular sonority. Raspa calls to mind a celebration in a Colombian town, where traditional band music is performed and danced at almost every local festivity. The piece recalls different styles of tropical music well-known and much loved by Colombians. Porro is a genre from the Colombian Caribbean coast, which also boasts the same cheerful character, but also brings to mind the atmosphere of charming parties at elegant ballrooms held in Cartagena and Barranquilla around the 1950s. At some point during the piece, there is a place for solo improvising, a common practice in porro performance.
