Our Description

Commissioned in 2002 by the National Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic for flutist Marina Piccinini, this lively and colorful one-movement concerto is based on the Cuban national dance, the danzón, as well as various other popular Cuban and Afro-Cuban styles. This very effective reduction for piano by Evan Hause with optional percussionist (guiro, clave, suspended cymbal, triangle, snare, bongos, rain stick, tom-toms, optional timpani) makes a sizzling virtuoso recital piece. Orchestral parts available upon request. “Best that night was Paquito D’Rivera’s Gran Danzon...a spiky and imaginatively colored piece...a dazzling work revealing D’Rivera’s sophistication as a composer.” Washington Post
