Three Latin Dances for Wind Ensemble

Three Latin Dances for Wind Ensemble --:-- --:--

Three Latin Dances was composed for the Eastman Wind Ensemble at the request of in September of 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.
