Ernesto Lecuona — La Comparsa (Carnival Procession) from Afro-Cuban Dances
Lecuona was one of Cuba’s most popular 20th Century composers and band leaders, and composed the well known Andalucia and Malagueña. He describes La Comparsa as follows: “The composition starts with the gradual approach of the procession [bassoon ostinato imitating pitched tambor drums] and carries one through all the excitement until the last faint notes of the departing parade die away in the distance.” Arranged by Adam Lesnick.
For Woodwind Quintet, 4 minutes.
