Program Notes

Mystery and intrigue are at the core of this exciting work based on sacred rituals performed by the Mayans in some of the most spectacular and extensive cave systems in the world. Opening with a chant-like theme, the music soon explodes into a whirlwind of rhythmic activity. The aggressive character of the music pushes forward as various themes compete against ostinato figures while an intense rhythmic pulse brings the work to a rousing conclusion.
