Danza de la Maripose
Composer: Coleman, V
Publisher: Theodore Presser Company
Instrumentation: Flute

This is a rhythmic and melodic tone poem giving the listener a tour of South America, inspired by the various species of butterflies that inhabit the continent.  Full of rich and unique colors, butterflies dance and weave in syncopated rhythms within the work, while alternating between the feel of 3 over 4 throughout.  The slower sections pay homage to the beautiful and sorrowful sounds in the style of Yaravi, a Peruvian lament song.  The melodies and rhythm eventually begin to evolve into the spirit and syncopation of Argentinean concert tango, and the end returnds to the feel of Yaravi.
