Revueltas composed his score for Chano Urueta's film La noche de los mayas ("The Night of the Mayas") in 1939. It was edited to a concert suite by Ives Limantours some twenty years after the composer's death. The suite stands as the largest in scale of all Revueltas's concert works, and the closest of them to a symphony.Its four-part structure offers a full-scale descriptive symphony, faithful both to symphonic structure and to the dramatic sense of the music's original function.
