    Default Arturo Marquez

    For me it has a strong Mexican flavour but also something from the Russian spirit of wide open spaces and a jazzy feel like the "Jazz Suite":

    Wow, how curious to find this thread while browsing around!
    Mr. Marquez is an amazing composer.. It's a real shame more people don't listen to him outside of Mexico.. And even here, most stay put with the Danzón No. 2.. He has so many amazing pieces of work..
    I especially recommend his Octeto Malandro and the Pasión Según San Juan de Letrán, as well as the rest of his Danzones..
    He teaches composition at my local university, so I'm hoping to get the opportunity to study with him in the fall..

    I've only heard his Danzones. But I'll have to check out those other two piece you recommended Andruini.
    I adore art...when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.
