La Danza de Selene

Composer: CORTÉS Juan Manuel

DZ 132


ISBN: 2-89500-018-2

Guitar and flute

8 p. + separated part


La Danza de Selene is in two parts and starts with a 20 bar improvisatory movement titled nvocacion. which features a plaintive flute melody played over a 'tambour' guitar part. (The flute score includes several notes needing to be played a quarter or three-quarters of a tone higher).
Although the second part. titled El Carro de Plata, is not marked to be played much quicker, the stricter tempo and gradually accelerating guitar part - beginning with quaver movement and then moving onto arpeggios flrst in semiquavers and then in demisemiquavers - gives this movement a feeling of forward motion and thrill. The whole composition has an Eastern flavour to it and Cortes has cleverly evoked the excitement and mood of Selene performing this sensuous dance in a short, but worthy composition.
Presentation is very good with a separate pull-out score for the flute and the guitar part.
