This beautiful Latin piece contrasts a lyrical A theme and a rhythmic B theme with convincing results. It gives everyone a chance to shine, especially violas and cellos when they carry the melodic lead in the B section while violins play pizzicato. Though the parts for piano, percussion (claves, maracas) and bells that come in each set are optional, their use will definitely enhance the style and flavor of the music. Duration 2:00.
