Program Notes

This is a masterwork for band composed by one of the most laureate musicians in Venezuela, Maestro Gonzalo Castellanos Yumar. It is a three voiced fugue structured in three parts with two episodes that act as bridges to connect the theme expositions. Those bridges are written using Venezuelan popular rhythms such as the joropo. In the composer's words, "This work represents the constant struggle between academic and popular musical expressions and the achievement of an harmonious synthesis in the conjunction of both."
