1. Contadanza

From the recording Explorations

Contradanza is the penultimate movement of Aires Tropicales, a 7-movement suite for woodwind quintet by Paquito D'Rivera. This arrangement, for bassoon or cello and piano, is by the composer.

The Contradanza is an example of Cuban music that evolved from European roots, adding Caribbean and Creole rhythms to create a uniquely Cuban art form.
