Danzas Latinoamericanas (Latin American Dances) was originally commissioned by Mexican cellist Carlos Prieto. It is based on some of the national dances of Argentina, Brazil and Mexico respectively.

·        Otoño en Buenos Aires, is indebted to the concert-style tangos of Astor Piazzolla, as well as the extraordinary songs of Carlos Gardel. 

·       Pan de Azúcar is named after the famous mountain in Rio de Janeiro. It echoes the sensuous music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the exuberant vitality of the works of Heitor Villa-Lobos.

·        Atardecer Tapatío is inspired by Mexican folk-dance music and the sound of “mariachi” bands. It is a tribute to the composer’s homeland.
