Máscaras (for cello and orchestra) (1993)
Soloist(s) and Orchestra
was inspired by the richly decorated masks used in traditional Mexican folk dances. The work is intended for performance either as a concert piece or a ballet. The music of Máscaras has a strong Mexican flavor and has woven into its texture two Mexican folk melodies -- El Tecolote ("The Owl") and El Tigre ("The Jaguar").
