·                 Danzas Latinoamericanas / Latin American Dances

·                           I.   Otoño en Buenos Aires / Autumn in Buenos Aires

·                           II.  Pan de Azúcar / Sugar Loaf

·                           III. Atardecer Tapatío / Sunset in Guadalajara

·        Commissioned by and dedicated to Mexican cellist Carlos Prieto

·        Length: 10 to 15 minutes for all 3 movements (depending on the version)

·        Mood: festive, lyrical, Latin, energetic

·        Movements: Three movements. They can be performed as a suite or independently

·        Description: Danzas Latinoamericanas is a suite inspired by dances from Argentina (tango), Brazil (bossa nova), and Mexico (jarabe).

o   1. Otoño en Buenos Aires is a passionate tango that pays homage to the music of Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel.

o   2. Pan de Azúcar is named after the famous mountain in Rio de Janeiro. It is inspired by Brazilian bossa nova. It echoes the sensuous music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Heitor Villa-Lobos. The melodies in this piece are expressive, melancholic and peaceful, with a general mood of "joyful serenity".   

o   3. Atardecer Tapatío is inspired by Mexican jarabe folk-dance music and the sound of “mariachi” bands. The music is worry-free, festive and full of life. It is a tribute to the composer’s homeland.
