Duration: 10-15 minutes total, depending on the version (each movement is approximately 3 to 4 minutes long)

All movements can be performed independently

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.

La Alborada de la Esperanza (The Dawn of Hope)

Duration: 4 minutes

The inspiration for this composition is the journey from darkness to light that happens when someone faces a challenging situation and is able to turn around and focus on a more positive future to come. Even though there is some struggle and melancholy in this journey, it gets transformed into hope. The result is a surprisingly luminous composition. It's a very tonal and lyrical and it is dedicated to French cellist Sébastien Hurtaud. The piano and cello version was premiered by Sébastien Hurtaud and Pamela Hurtado as part of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11th, 2018. The version for cello and string orchestra was premiered during the World Youth Days in Panama on January 24th, 2019.
