Candombe for Flute and Piano by Jose Serebrier

Piano reduction score and flute part

Duration: c. 3:00

Originally composed for flute and chamber orchestra.

Composer notes: In the 17th and 18th centuries Africans sold as slaves took the candombe percussion patterns to Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and even to Cuba, where it developed different rhythms.  It became adopted especially in Uruguay, later modifying into milonga, itself a predecessor of the tango. Candombe, milonga and tango originated from the same African roots, but tango adopted its name and pulsation from Spain.  Candombe still exists in Uruguay, especilly during Carnival, when amazing drummers parade with their collection of drums played with bare hands.  My own Candombe is just an homage to the genre, contrasting the broken rhythm with melodic turns.  It was written especially for the recording with the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra, which includes my three previous attempts at concert tangos. — Jose Serebrier
