Roberto Sierra's Sinfonia No. 3: La Salsa
This weekend I'll be performing this piece, on piano, with the Illinois Wind Symphony. Below is the first movement of four.
It has a lot of memorable Latin melodies and styles, with a great mix of contemporary classical compositional style.
The entire Sinfonia is available on iTunes, performed by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (in its world premiere). (The band transcription is by Mark Scatterday.)
It's a fun piece with a hefty piano part. We'll also be recording it this weekend to release on a CD later this year.
