An arrangement for classical brass quintet & percussion of the national anthem of Cuba.“La Bayamesa” (The Bayamo Song) was first performed in 1868 during the battle of Bayamo in a Cuban uprising against Spain. The author of the song played a leading part in the battle, and was captured by the Spaniards and executed by a firing squad in 1870; it is said that just before the firing squad executed Figueredo, he shouted one of the lines from the anthem: “Morir por la Patria es vivir”.Officially adopted in 1940 (using only the first verse of the much longer, anti-Spanish work), the anthem was retained even after the communist revolution in 1959. The anthem is usually performed with a musical introduction, which was composed by Antonio Rodriguez-Ferrer.For more of my original music, great arrangements and all the national anthems of the world, check out my on-line stores: an anthem fast?
