Overture for Symphony Orchestra
(Transcription for Wind Band)
Dedicated with all my affection to the Downey Symphony Orchestra, for its hard work and dedication, and, of course, to it’s conductor, Sharon Lavery, for her professionalism and great passion for music.
Downey Overture is a Latin-American fusion with which I have wanted to link my birth country, Spain, and California, the land that, as a result of the two years I lived there, has left a permanent imprint on my heart.
An amalgam of rhythm and musical color wrapped in an atmosphere of dance are the essence to this piece. It is joyful, energetic and written with all my enthusiasm and dedication. It could not have been any other way for the “Downey Symphony Orchestra”.
