Known as the Cuban Gershwin, 20th century composer Ernesto Lecuona wrote “Malaguena” as the sixth and final movement of his Suite Andalucia for piano, referring to the southern Spanish port city of Malaga. A flamenco piece, Ann Cameron Pearce’s arrangement of Malaguena is a delightful study in contrasting tempi and styles, with impish themes, driving basslines, frivolous arpeggios and a dramatic flair. For advanced ensembles.
Scored for piccolo, 3 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and contrabass flute. (This instrumentation is somewhat flexible to accommodate each ensemble.)
