Tortuga is a Caribbean island that forms part of Haiti. In the seventeenth century Tortuga Island was a hotbed of piracy lasting for about thirty years. In this composition Tortuga Island has a mysterious quality that is reminiscent of the pirate days of the island. Your students should enjoy this piece that is suitable for both concerts and contests. Be careful of the pizzicato introduction. As directors know, that is an open door for rushing. The tempo is flexible, but try not to go faster than quarter note equals 120. It is suggested that the piano part be used for rehearsal only. The piece is rather straightforward, but it would help to accent the tied eighth notes in the syncopations. As usual, pay attention to dynamic contrasts throughout the piece.
