Three Latin Dances was composed for the Eastman Wind Ensemble at the request of Mark Scatterday in September of 2018. In the past twenty years, Mark has been very instrumental in encouraging me to compose wind music. I am grateful for the many wind ensemble projects and recordings we have collaborated on including IMAGES, our CD that was released in October 2018.
In this short suite, I used three different popular Latin dance forms.
The first dance section is based on the Danzón, a Cuban dance that is slow, formal and elegant. The Danzón transitions into a Cha Cha, another Cuban dance that is a medium tempo rhythmic dance. After a brief recap of the Danzón another transition evolves into a Malambo, an Argentine dance that is exciting, up tempo and whose roots can be traced back to the 1600s.
As one might imagine, the percussion section is very busy and featured throughout from the elegant and lyrical introduction to the exciting finish.
Mark Scatterday conducting the Eastman Wind Ensemble gave the World Premiere performance of this piece in Severance Hall on May 7, 2019.
