Night in the Tropics for flute octect

$19.00

“Night in the Tropics” (1859) was premiered in Cuba with a huge orchestra, brass band and native drummers. This version of the work presents only the introduction of the opening slow movement before launching into the Cuban dance music. The percussion of the native drummers is imitated by extended techniques—tongue rams, noise effects, and multiphonics.
