Dance party! The elegance and vigor of Arturo Márquez’s Danzon No. 2 invite us into a turn of the century Veracruzian ballroom, while Barber’s Souvenirs is a tour of six charming, provocative, playful, and rollicking dances. Finally, from the drama and storytelling of Beethoven’s “heroic” period springs the unfettered joy of his 7th symphony, the so-called “apotheosis of the dance.”

Arturo Márquez: Danzón No. 2
