AHORA ES EL TIEMPO was the first piece I wrote upon arriving in Copenhagen in 2008. Having experienced first-hand the music of Cuba during a visit to Havana in 2003, I tried to imbue this composition with that exciting spirit. The trombones’ interlocking lines set the tone from the start. And once the dance begins, it doesn’t cease until the final bar.
Solo spots for trumpet and tenor.
