Premiere of "Cinco Danzas Para Violín"

Edward Perez's new suite, Cinco Danzas Para Violín, has just been premiered by violinist Johnny Gandelsman as part of St Paul Minnesota's 2017 International Spanish Music Festival. The work explores the connection between movement and music in five musical styles from a variety of hispanic cultures, using a single instrument to evoke the rhythm, dance, and call-and-response present in Afro-Latin musical styles.
