Fire! Fever! Flame! Temperament! - these are the terms most often used to describe Latin American music. Each of us has at least once been electrified by these unmistakable rhythms, this joy of life and this "esprit."

Rhythmical accuracy is a special qualification every musician has to fulfill to perform this composition. The complete piece is played fast and as hot as possible. Instrumenation: 3 Clarinets (sub. Alto Clar. for 3rd Clar.), Bass Clarinet.
