    Aires Tropicales [1111-1]

    Currently in the repertoire of quintets worldwide, this recital piece's individual movements also work well for jobs and educational concerts. The seven movements are: Alborada, a slow introduction, Son with an ostinato Latin bass line, Habanera, similar to Ravel, Vals Venezolano, a lively Venezuelan waltz, Dizzyness, an homage to Dizzy Gillespie, Contredanza, an upbeat Cuban dance, and Afro, a rhythmic 6/8 dance over an African ostinato. Doubling on piccolo and English horn. "...Aires Tropicaleswas the concluding work and the most spectacularly successful." ---The Washington Post
